Great call. Steady Eddie on both ends.

After a few years of listening to Chin Coleman scouting reports pregame at BU, this had the hallmarks of a Chin Coleman scout.

Ayo made Terry Nolan look engaged. Dog performance.

No disrespect to Sister Jean, but I hope that the media narrative becomes Porter and his team. It's a real disservice to make it all about what is essentially a mascot. These players and coaches deserve to be featured going forward.

I believe the tournament experience gap was a big part of it. Loyola did everything they needed to do. They know exactly what they are and aren’t.

Talking about HC possibilities, when do you guys believe Alvin Brooks III will get his chance? The Scott Drew tree has done very well in this tournament i.e Oral Roberts and N. TX.

AB3 might get a chance in the SWAC. But I doubt he would have any opportunity above that without demonstrating success at a lower level first. He's an example of a guy that has managed to fail upward.

Loyola now also is tied with Duke for the all-time best NCAA Tournament win percentage (.750) at 15-5.

A lot of time left, but Oregon State rolling. Looks like Loyola has a good chance to catch the 12 seed in the Sweet 16.

Krutwig gets knocked a lot....even in compliments I see elsewhere, they are often kinda backhanded. Yes, he looks goofy and has a different style, but there are few bigs that handle it this well with the ball in their hands on offense, and have as good of instincts and quick hands on defense. He is high level as far as instinctual abilities.

He’s basically MVC Jokic.

Honestly, I want to see how Loyola and Williamson handle Cunningham. Would be interesting.

Cunningham still has a lot of flaws. If they play against him I think they'll really frustrate him into a lot of mistakes.

We fans of the Valley teams face the yearly issue of having our teams seeded too low in tourney. Its fun to listen to the big-conference teams complain about seeding when their team gets whacked by a disrespected Valley team.
