For Michigan, it’s been a strange route to get here. From a terrible win against Montana to a miracle shot against Houston in Wichita during the opening weekend, Michigan’s second weekend has looked a lot better. It demolished Texas A&Mbefore having struggles with a physical Florida State team, but behind ridiculously gritty defense it’s survived everything thus far.
Loyola-Chicago has had, if possible, a weirder road. It won its first three games by a combined four points before destroying Kansas State. The Sister Jean Dream is alive and well, and Loyola-Chicago tied for the highest seed to ever make the Final Four. Loyola-Chicago is keeping the Missouri Valley on the map, but right now it’s all about the Ramblers.
No. 11-seeded Loyola has beaten a higher seed in each matchup of the NCAA Tournament so far and will have to do so again, as No. 3 Michigan awaits. After winning their first three games by a combined four points, the Ramblers got down to business with a breezy 17-point win over Kansas State on Saturday to move to the Final Four – their first since winning the NCAA championship in 1963. The Wolverines staved off Florida State in a low-scoring affair, giving them a program-record 32 wins.
Players to Watch
Ben Richardson was nearly perfect in Loyola’s drubbing of the Wildcats, as he hit 7 of 10 shots — including 6 of 7 from deep — for a game-high 23 points with six rebounds and four assists.
Charles Matthews was terrific for the Wolverines in Saturday’s win, recording a game-high 17 points while adding a team-high eight rebounds.
Every win from here on out is a program record for Loyola, as the 32-win Ramblers are well past their 29-2 pace from 1962-63.
This is Michigan’s eighth Final Four trip, but just its second since the two trips vacated by the “Fab Five.”
These teams played three times between 1953 and 1969, with Michigan winning twice.
A matchup with Duke in the final remains a potential outcome for Loyola; in the Ramblers’ title run in 1963, they beat the Blue Devils in the Final Four.
The Ramblers have won 21 of their last 22 games, while the Wolverines have won 15 of 16.
Loyola boasts a stout defense that ranks fifth nationally with just 62.4 points allowed per game; Michigan isn’t far behind, ranking ninth with 63.3 points per contest.
