On March 6, over 300 Loyola alumni and students converged on St. Louis for Loyola’s inaugural performance at Arch Madness, the Missouri Valley Conference men’s basketball championship tournament. In their opening-round match-up against Bradley, the lower-rated Ramblers emerged victorious 74–72, after freshman Milton Doyle sunk a buzzer-beating three-pointer.

that has already become a Loyola legend.
It marked Loyola's first postseason win since March 2008, bringing the Ramblers’ first game in the Missouri Valley Conference to a thrilling conclusion.
The Ramblers trailed second-seeded Indiana State at halftime by only four points during the quarterfinals, but they fell in the second half for a final score of 62–75. Loyola's season ended with a memorable opening game in a storied tournament where we look forward to watching the Ramblers compete for years to come.
