Loyola-Chicago preview, predictions: Which team reaches Final Four?

Loyola-Chicago preview, predictions: Which team reaches Final Four?

He also celebrates pre-game Mass for the Chicago Bears and knows how important it is for fans to have faith. The Ramblers are only the second team in tournament history to win three games by a total of four points.

For casual and avid sports fans alike, nothing compares to the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Not necessarily by competition, but having to do it without their leading scoring and First-Team All-Big 12 player Dean Wade.

While my Illinois Fighting Illini had a awful rebuilding season, I can take solace in the fact a team from my state and my city has shown that even the littlest of guys can make their dreams come true.

"When we got into the tournament, we didn't want to just be here", he said.

The Loyola Ramblers are one win away from the Final Four.

The top-seeded Wildcats continued their outside feast in the NCAA Tournament, downing the fifth-seeded Mountaineers 90-78 on Friday night to earn their second trip to the regional finals in three seasons.

Loyola easily won the Missouri Valley regular season title, finishing 15-3 in league games (and 25-5 overall), four games clear of anyone else. They're a good team.

The Ramblers of Loyola-Chicago have been thriving and surviving in their first three games of the NCAA tournament. "In 2013 I was fortunate enough to ride their coat tails to the White House". Sister Jean is a 98-year-old nun who has been the chaplain of the Loyola Chicago men's basketball teams since 1994.

Maryland school shooter "wasn't a troublemaker", neighbor says
They are investigating whether the officer's rounds struck the shooter; the sheriff added that Gaskill was not injured. The shooting happened just weeks after a deadly attack on a high school in Parkland, Fla., that killed 17 people.


A new design of Sister Jean bobbleheads became available for preorder Friday, but the first dolls won't get to customers until June. This whole team has.

Villanova: The Wildcats are primed for another title run with their talent led by player of the year contender Brunson, the experience of the 2016 title and the lessons learned from early tournament departures in several years, including a second-round loss to Wisconsin last year. Scott made all five of his 3-point shots, Richmond was 2-for-4 and Henson made his only attempt. "He was a warrior", said Loyola coach Porter Moser. I thought she was just going to pray.

The Wildcats' 13 3-pointers give them 432 for the season, putting them 11 away from a Division I record. And the win set up the first matchup between a No. 9 and a No. 11 seed in NCAA tournament history.

This past season, Moser was voted MVC coach of the year and is on the verge of becoming the first coach since Shaka Smart in 2011 to lead a No. 11 seed to the Final Four.

For the third straight year as a No. 1 seed, KU made its way through the Sweet 16. Nevada called a timeout after Townes' shot gave the Ramblers a 69-65 lead. "So they've got to be pretty good, and whatever they've done here as of late, they're hot". Perhaps those three guys keep the train going. On a team that shares the spotlight, this was Townes' moment. Ramblers guard Marques Townes caught a half-court inbounds pass, but he appeared to travel immediately after he caught the ball and prior to being fouled by Nevada's Jordan Caroline.

"I think about it all the time. This is unbelievable. Feels like a dream". Graham came up big, snagging an offensive rebound late that was the icing on the cake and adding 16 points, but it was guard Malik Newman who finished with 17 to lead the Jayhawks offense. Twin brother Cody Martin had 16. She had predicted Nevada to win, but said she didn't mind that her bracket was busted. Clay made a great play, got downhill, kicked me to the corner. Sister Jean has become more than just a heartwarming symbol; she's become an worldwide one.

After the tight-knit group of friends enjoyed a smorgasbord of snacks and compared one another's brackets, Wudel admitted that Nagle filled out the best bracket and recalled an especially memorable March in which he and Strong accidentally startled their classmates in English class.

In 1987-88, Silver Lake native Lon Kruger was Kansas State's coach, and the Wildcats were playing their final season in storied Ahearn Field House.
