Make your damn free throws, kids.
Loyola Chicago knocked off Miami 64-62 thanks to a last second three pointer from Donte Ingram, which was preceded by a missed free throw from Miami’s Lonnie Walker.
It was a nightmarish 30 seconds for Walker, who turned the ball over after a Loyola free throw made the game 62-61 to give the Ramblers a shot at taking the lead.
Loyola was unable to take advantage, missing a pair of looks under the basket before Miami regained possession.
That led to Walker’s missed free throw and Ingram’s long three that will go into the history books. It’s Loyola’s first NCAA Tournament win since 1985, which was their last appearance in the Big Dance.
Needless to say, Ramblers fans were amped by the win.

They’ll face the Tennessee Volunteers, who easily dispatched Wright State, in the second round on Saturday.
