The top-seed in the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament and regular season champions, Loyola-Chicago is looking to finish a terrific MVC season with a NCAA Tournament berth.
The Ramblers gained national spotlight in the non-conference when they beat Florida by ten points in Gainesville. The two losses in the non-conference both came on the road, at Boise State and at Milwaukee
They beat Illinois State twice in the conference regular season, at home and on the road.
Clayton Custer is the leading-scorer. The 6’1″ guard from Overland Park, Kansas is remarkably efficient; he shoots 53 percent from the field and almost 46 percent on about six three-point tries per game.
Custer can be so efficient because he isn’t being asked to be the volume scorer he could be on a team without as much depth as the Ramblers. Five guys score in double-figures and the next leading-scorer, Ben Richardson, averages the second-most minutes on the team as a do-everything senior guard.
Illinois State Redbirds
These two teams played one another in their final game of the regular season, Loyola-Chicago winning by seven at its place. The game was incredibly close for the entire game, though. The final margin of victory was the largest lead Loyola-Chicago held all day.
The Redbirds got 41 points from its starting backcourt Keyshawn Evans and William Tinsley. The leading-scorer on the season is junior forward Milik Yarbrough, though.
Yarbrough sat out last season after transferring from Saint Louis. He’s returning home to his former home for a chance to play for an NCAA Tournament berth now.
He can score but doesn’t have to to impact the game in a positive way for his team. He shot only 4-for-9 the last time these two teams played but grabbed seven rebounds and collected six assists.
