While the may have heard about it in the past, it's certainly come to the forefront for the players of the team as they approach their first Elite Eight game in 55 years. "Yeah, we take a lot of pride in tradition, and our history is very important". He's done it with a faceless roster and a fanbase that's wanted him out for three years.

The S&P 500 posted two new 52-week highs and 42 new lows; the Nasdaq Composite recorded 23 new highs and 93 new lows. Technology and industrial companies, basic materials makers and health care companies also fell sharply.

The 1963 team won Loyola's only national championship.

Coached by Porter Moser who originally hails from Naperville, Loyola guard Donte Ingram hits a 3-pointer as the buzzer sounds to defeat No. 6 Miami 64-62, the first big upset of the 2018 NCAA Tournament. Although they struggled to shoot the basketball during the first two games of the tournament, the Wolverines came out firing and shocked the college basketball world by shooting 58.3% from three-point range.

One of the biggest mysteries of the college basketball season and the NCAA Tournament will be about who legitimately had 9-seed Kansas State taking on 11-seed Loyola-Chicago in the South Regional championship in Atlanta's Phillips Arena on Saturday afternoon. In fact, this marks the sixth time Bill Self's team has been seeded first since KU won it all in 2008; the Jayhawks haven't made the Final Four one of those times. MI sophomore point guard Zavier Simpson led the way defensively against Texas A&M with a team-high six steals, half of the Wolverines' output. The Wildcats have been suffocating throughout the tournament, and did it again in the Sweet 16 against Kentucky. Nevada called a timeout after Townes' shot gave the Ramblers a 69-65 lead. He went small against Nevada with no true big man on the floor, and used it to string together buckets at will to start the second half. "Thank goodness they got out of it". "Those guys keep coming at you, coming at you". "I mean, it doesn't really get any better than that". On a team that shares the spotlight, this was Townes' moment. Nevada's fearlessness showed when powerful forward Jordan Caroline soared in the lane attempting to dunk on Krutwig, drawing a foul.
