No. 8 Loyola Chicago stuns No. 1 seed Illinois to advance to the Sweet 16

Illinois has become the first No. 1 seed to lose in the NCAA tournament after being upset by No. 8 seed Loyola Chicago.

The RambIers defeated the Fighting Illini, 71-58, on Sunday to be the first team to advance to the Sweet 16.
Loyola Chicago center Cameron Krutwig was among the top scorers, tallying 19 punti e 12 rimbalzi, along with senior guard Lucas Williamson, who scored 14 points to lead the Ramblers to their second Sweet 16 appearance in three years.
      Before the game, famed Loyola Chicago 101-year-old team chaplain, Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, gave the men’s team a prayer of inspiration:
        As we play the Fighting Illini, we ask for special help to overcome this team and get a great win. We hope to score early and make our opponents nervous. We have a great opportunity to convert rebounds as this team makes about 50% of layups and 30% del proprio 3 punti. Our defense can take care of that.
          The Ramblers will play the winner of tonight’s game between Oregon State and Oklahoma State.
