ST. LOUIS (AP) — Step aside, Northwestern. Take a seat, DePaul.
For now, Loyola-Chicago is the king of Windy City basketball.
The Ramblers earned their first NCAA Tournament appearance in 33 years with a 65-49 win over Ilinois State in the Missouri Valley Conference championship game on Sunday.
Donte Ingram scored 18 points and Cameron Krutwig added 11 points and nine rebounds for Loyola-Chicago (28-5), which reached the Sweet 16 in its last NCAA tourney appearance, in 1985.
