Watch Loyola Fans Go Wild In Chicago Bar After Donte Ingram's Game Winner Over MiamiMore

The first day in the NCAA Tournament's Round of 32 was filled with blowouts, but also some nail-biting drama, mostly coming in the form of clutch shots - One that propelled MI over Houston, and the other sending Cinderella Loyola-Chicago over Tennessee into the Sweet Sixteen.

At least that's one way to look at what happened to Tennessee at the close of its 63-62 loss to the Ramblers in the second round of the South Regional on Saturday night. Loyola won, 63-62, to advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament.Loyola center Cameron Krutwig, a Jacobs High School graduate, shoots after getting past Tennessee's Marques Townes (left) and Jake Baughman during the second half of a second-round game of the NCAA tournament Saturday in Dallas.

Loyola faces No. 7 Nevada or No. 2 Cincinnati on Thursday in the Sweet 16 at Philips Arena in Atlanta. A late Ramblers shot bounced multiple times on the rim before falling through.

College basketball fans are taking notice of Sister Jean, many wondering whether her prayers will lead the Ramblers to a title.

Tennessee went on a 14-2 run, which was capped by Grant Williams' jumper, which drew a foul.

Sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt may really have a direct line to the Lord.

"It's fantastic when you have a group of people who believe", Ramblers coach Porter Moser told reporters.

It came to a head in the final possession, when Florida got three different looks from 3-point range with a chance to tie. "That one shot was a nice tough shot, but the entire game, we allow a team to shoot 50 percent, we got out-rebounded by this team".

"It just hurts so bad, man, honestly, I've never felt like this before in my life", Jordan Bone said through tears in the locker room after the loss.

"We have to prove Sister Jean wrong on this one", Custer said.

The Ramblers did a good job spreading the floor, which made Tennessee struggle to key on Aundre Jackson, who led the team with a game-high 16 points, and Custer, who scored 10 points.

The Ramblers knew their game against a talented and physical SEC team was going to be a "dogfight", especially since size was not in their favor. And Loyola double-teamed the 6-5, 238-pound junior on any catches in the low post. Tennessee forward Admiral Schofield had just intercepted a Custer pass and returned it for a resounding dunk and his 11th point of the young game. "But we have to stay confident and make the adjustments from team to team".

"I've seen him make one-two dribble, one-two pull-up probably a million times", Richardson said.

At the half the Volunteers were held to just 39 percent shooting from the field and made just 4-of-13 shots from beyond-the-arc. "We came out with a little chip on our shoulder like, 'This isn't how it's going to end for us'". "The way she prays for us, the way she smiles".

The fifth-seeded Wildcats (26-10) led by only five points with just over eight minutes left in the game before closing out the game on a 23-8 run.

Loyola now has won four of its last five games against SEC opponents. Miami was without sophomore guard Bruce Brown in the teams' first-round meeting on Thursday, and a hip injury kept Tennessee starting forward Kyle Alexander out Saturday.

Donte DiVincenzo added 18 points for Villanova (32-4), which hadn't advanced out of the second round in three of the last four years, though it did capture the national championship in 2016.
