"Just with their length, they've been blocking the shots all game".

Had he taken a different path, Clayton Custer, Loyola's terrific junior point guard, could have been suiting up for either team.

Loyola-Chicago has won its three NCAA Tournament games this month by a combined four points. In the final minutes of the game, Harkness could be heard saying, "We need a stop".

"It's just kind of been who we are, about the next game", Moser said. Even more stunning is that Loyola or Kansas State could be one of multiple teams with a 9-seed or higher to make the final four. Thursday, they squeaked out a one-point victory over Nevada and are now headed to the NCAA Tournament's Elite Eight.

Sister Jean leads the team in prayer before each game, and she prays for her players to be safe, for the referees to be fair, and for God's assistance during the game.

K-State player to watch: Xavier Sneed. "In 2013 I was fortunate enough to ride their coat tails to the White House".

Sister Jean became a media sensation even before the tournament tipped off.

On Thursday night, she once again stole the show with her comments about the latest Ramblers upset.

In a radio interview he said he was happy that she had not renounced her faith. "We did not pay any ransom for the girls". Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari on Friday hosted the recently released Dapchi girls at the presidency in Abuja .

"A sign in the first few rows of a section filled with Loyola-Chicago faithful - and that's the precise words Ramblers fans use to refer to themselves, with good reason - told the story of the No. 11 seed that continued to defy the odds", Post writer Gene Wang wrote.

"I'll probably remember it for the rest of my life", Townes said. "And once we got it done, I knew he was so proud, was so happy. just hugging everyone". Two No.9 seeds and a No.11 seed will play in Saturday's two regional finals.

Nevada scored 8 consecutive points with 5:19 left in the 2nd Half, making the game 57-55 in favor of Loyola Chicago. The Ramblers have defeated Miami, Tennessee and Nevada in their road to the elite eight, while the Wildcats have ousted Creighton, UMBC, followed by a win over Kentucky in their route to this battle.

Following a timeout, Nevada's Caleb Martin answered with a 3, but this time the Wolf Pack couldn't extend their string of second-half comebacks in the tournament.

"He was a warrior", Moser said.

Its 1963 title run was also marked by captivating moments from a team that won while breaking through racial barriers by starting four African-American players. He made each of his two 3s and led Loyola with five assists. He said he was fine after banging knees with Nevada's Jordan Caroline at the end of the game. "They recruited me, but I don't think they really wanted me".

"This is unbelievable. Feels like a dream".

"I should have denied the catch", Martin said of Loyola's pass to Townes. A Loyola team whose bus driver got lost on the way to Wednesday's practice was back on track. She leads the team's pre-game prayers. Now she's celebrating her own busted bracket. And the results suggest that Loyola-Chicago is the team on the West/South half of the bracket that would garner the most interest from television viewers.
