Loyola is NCAA Tournament-bound after beating ISU for MVC title

Inconsistent offense, however, prevented the Panthers from extending their season Friday afternoon in the quarterfinals of the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. His scoring was huge as senior forwards Donte Ingram and Aundre Jackson, who each led Loyola with eight points in the first half, did not score in the second half. Phil Fayne scored 10 of his 15 points in the second half and sank two free throws with 4.1 seconds left to close the door on Indiana State. "They said, 'You come here, we'll develop you and have moments like this.' They had a vision for me, and I made a decision to go there and obviously it's paid off". Townes hit a 3-pointer with 1:25 remaining and the Ramblers made 3 of 4 free throws to end it. "They just refused to quit ..." "We needed to make one or two more, and maybe they miss one more, and that's enough".

Yarbrough scored 12 points to go with five assists and four rebounds, and was also named to the All-Tournament Team. Northern Iowa (16-16) got 20 points from center Bennett Koch and 10 from Wyatt Lohaus, but couldn't quite pull the first upset of the No. 1 seed in the quarterfinals. "That stretch hurt us, but, man, the guys, they still battled their tails off, and we still had all the important stuff with nine minutes to go".

Krutwig scored 11 points and grabbed nine rebounds in the title game.

In the second half, Bradley put the pressure back on the Ramblers, cutting the Loyola lead to 54-53 with 6:42 remaining. Those three, plus Ted Friedman, are the departing seniors for UNI. In saying that, we weren't too far off it. "We left Chicago thinking, 'Let's just win all three (games) and (the NCAA Tournament Committee) can't keep us out". They were going to do everything that they could within their power and with the influence they had on their teammates so that, no matter what our record was, we were going to play our best when it mattered most. We were fighting uphill the entire conference season, and we still played our best in the last three weeks.
