Wagner puts MI on his back and into title game

And that was that.

"Wow. If you put it like that, it's probably cool", Wagner said.

"I kept looking possession by possession", Wagner said.

The second half from the Wolverines was in stark contrast to the first-half effort. Krutwig bullied his way for eight of his 17 total points in the paint in the first half. "I just thought the entire concept and everything that she brought to the table". Loyola was knocked out of the tournament in Michigan's 69-57 victory. And our offense was a lot more organized.

It was a full night.

With the game out of reach for Loyola after MI took a commanding eight-point lead late in the second half, Sister Jean left the building from her prominent first row post - and did not return.

Loyola was led by Cameron Krutwig with 17 and Custer with 15.

They'll just struggle, as ever, with the plight of an alleged mid-major getting the fellow big names to play them.

Custer scored seven straight points for Loyola at one point to put the Ramblers up 41-31 with 14:08 remaining.

When the whole binge on one end and purge on the other got finished with 2:13 left and MI ahead 61-51, the last of Loyola Chicago's month of fetching resistance had faded.

Neither side did much from outside the three-point line, perhaps because of nerves, perhaps because of the challenge of shooting in a huge stadium rather than an arena.

"I think we take a little bit of our identity from Sister Jean, for sure", Shanks said. "So not dropping our heads was one of the main adjustments we had to make".

As the seconds ticked off, Wagner pumped his fist to the many MI fans who made the trek to San Antonio.

Wagner had 11 points on five-of-eight shooting and 11 rebounds, and Matthews had eight markers, but no other player had more than two points in the first half, as the Wolverines converted just nine of their 31 attempts from the field and two of their 13 looks from three-point range.

In 100 years of basketball at Loyola, a Catholic college in the heart of Chicago with of about 16,000 students, no team has won more games than this year's Ramblers (30-5), the No. 11 seed in the South Region.

A poster reading "Bye Bye Sista" - a dig at Loyola's team chaplain and media sensation, Sister Jean - flashed to the camera.

"It's special to see kind of what stage that we were able to get to", the Loyola senior Ben Richardson said. "Despite going out this way, were going to never forget this". "And I couldn't be happier to have chosen Loyola and came to Chicago and played for him". Hail, Michigan prevailed over so many Hail Marys.

After all, the Missouri Valley Conference champions had not been to the NCAA tournament since 1985 and last won the national title during a racially charged March Madness run in 1963.

"This team's had no attention at all", Beilein said.

He told Negron, "Your offseason starts when we get back". "Now we're playing on Monday night".

Loyola had no answers for the 6-foot-11 Wagner. - Loyola players pranced into the locker room leading 29-22 and believing they could win this thing.

Loyola's recruits for next season are ranked as three-star players: 6-9 center Franklin Agunanne from La Lumiere in IN, 6-3 shooting guard Cooper Kaifes from Kansas and 6-2 point guard Isaiah Bujdoso from Washington.

Moritz Wagner refused to let the Michigan Wolverines become Loyola-Chicago's next victim. Assists-Loyola of Chicago 6 (Ingram 2), MI 8 (Simpson 3).
