Loyola gets her by way of beating top seeded Illinois. There was nothing fluky about that result, this Ramblers team is that good and a trip to the Final Four seems kind of probable now.
By now the Oregon State story is well known. Their season was supposed to end during the PAC 12 a couple of weeks back they just didn’t get the memo and decided to win the thing. Then they beat Tennessee and Oklahoma State to make the Sweet Sixteen.
It looks like the Beavers season is finally going to come to a close. Where have we heard that before?
The Ramblers are probably not getting enough credit for their win over Illinois. They were in control of the game throughout and shutdown an All-American in Ayo Dosunmu. They dit not just get lucky by making a couple of big shots.
Cam Krutwig is the ultimate college player. He has skill and does what the coach wants him to do to fit in with the team. He was masterful against the Illini and held up just fine even though Kofi Cockburn is a beast. That bodes well if they have to take on another big man.
The only reason to be nervous about the Ramblers is the sudden role reversal. They are no longer the plucky underdogs. However, coach Porter Moser has his group so well prepared that seems unlikely.
Oregon State Beavers
Oregon State did it again. They have now won five straight elimination games all as an underdog. That is quite the run but this team has been good in that role all season long.
Beaver fever is in full effect. Oregon State makes the Sweet Sixteen thanks to a win over Oklahoma State. Again, this was no fluke, they were up 14 at halftime and even though they gave some back in the second half they never panicked in the win.
Oregon State has beaten some very good teams as they have enjoyed their current run. Loyola-Chicago is probably the best though, especially on defense. The Beavers will have to hope their shots are still falling. Zach Reichie and Maurice Calloo have been making more than 50% of their three over the past five games. If that continues they will be in this game for sure.

Free Loyola-Chicago Ramblers vs. Oregon State Beavers NCAAB Prediction:
The Beavers are a great story but at some point, the bubble has to burst. The Ramblers are really, really good and you can ignore the #8 next to their name. They play like a Top Ten team in most games, at least that is what KenPom says, and they are the best defensive team too. The Beavers are not going to embarrass themselves, they have been playing much too well for that, but they exit nonetheless. This one will not be in doubt in the last couple of minutes.
