Elite 8: Loyola basketball has fans on edge, remembering 1963 NCAA tournament

FSU Basketball NCAA Tournament Elite Eight Preview: vs. Michigan

FSU Basketball NCAA Tournament Elite Eight Preview: vs. Michigan

All that talk about busted brackets and the maddest March ever - not happening in the Midwest.

"I emphasized to these guys they've really got to kind of block out everything that's going on around them and really focus on preparing for Loyola", Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said. Seven of those boards were on the offensive end and led to second-chance baskets. 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. It's been a region full of upsets, including the top overall seed in the tournament, Virginia, getting eliminated by a No. 16 seed, UMBC, in just their first game.

"Everything started working", said Jackson, who scored 13 of his 15 points in the second half. Purdue got it down to 1 early in the second but the Red Raiders never surrendered the lead. The Tigers didn't turn it over once down the stretch, and they finished 14 of 19 at the free throw line - which was a strong point all year. Kansas State fans have to grin and bear this.

Purdue came in ranked second nationally in 3-point percentage and connected on 7 of 18 for the game. Against the Boilermakers, the Red Raiders forced 17 turnovers, which their offense was efficiently able to convert into 78 points and 47.5% shooting from the field.

No insane comeback story here.

The balanced Seminoles (23-11) got here by upending 1-seed Xavier then beating a 32-win Gonzaga team in the Sweet 16. Will any advance to the Final Four?

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. "We take a lot of pride on defense".

Who knows when we get it again? Graham's offensive rebound after a Svi Mykhailiuk miss at the 1:57 mark allowed the Jayhawks to run nearly a minute off the clock. From there, Kansas overcame a dogged Clemson press just long enough to ensure that the Tigers couldn't pull any closer until the tail end. Kansas came into the game a 4 1/2-point favourite.

Loyola-Chicago has won its three tournament games by a combined four points, defeating 6 seed Miami (Florida) by two points via a near-buzzer-beater in the first round, 3 seed Tennessee by one point via another late shot in the round of 32 and 7 seed Nevada 69-68 in the Sweet 16 Thursday.

Now that the Ramblers have reached the Elite Eight and the entire college basketball world has fallen in love with the Ramblers icon, it seems that everyone wants their own legendary Sister Jean bobblehead.

Villanova trailed by 6 before scoring 11 straight points to take a 65-60 lead with 9:03 remaining.

"I mean, when you talk about having pride for your school, and tradition comes up in conversation, obviously, that's something that - Loyola has the only championship in IL", said guard Donte Ingram of the 1963 team.

Sitting on his parents' couch beside former teammates and longtime friends like Michael Wudel, Jay Nagle, Zach Marsh-Wojan, Adam Grabowski, Chris Catlin and Timmy Landis, the Nevada Wolf Pack freshman soaked in his university's final game of the season following their astonishing run that featured a 22-point comeback victory against No. 2 Cincinnati and an overtime win versus No. 10 Texas. Sagaba Konate added 12 points with nine rebounds.
