At the buzzer, Loyola upsets Miami in 64-62 thriller

Loyola Chicago upsets Miami, advances to play Tennessee in second round No. 11 Loyola-Chicago Upsets No. 6 Miami With Deep Last-Second Winner

The sixth-seeded Hurricanes (22-10) led most of the second half in their third straight trip to the tournament, but couldn't pull away in the final minutes and lost in the first round for the second straight year.

Loyola Chicago's Donte Ingram hit a 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds remaining to lift the No. 11 seed Ramblers over No. 6 seed Miami 64-62 on Thursday afternoon at American Airlines Center.

Additionally, the Hurricanes were without their leading scorer and rebounder Bruce Brown Jr. due to injury.

No. 11 Loyola-Chicago gave basketball fans the first upset win of the 2018 NCAA Tournament with a dramatic win over the No. 6 Miami Hurricanes.

But the Ramblers missed back-to-back shots under the bucket.

At halftime the game was tied at 28 after a jumper by Miami's Dejan Vasiljevic.

Loyola now moves on to face No. 3 Tennessee in the second round of the South region. Clayton Custer finished with 14 points for Loyola.

With 23.5 seconds left, Lonnie Walker IV made a critical error by stepping out of balance, which resulted in Loyola's ball.

Loyola got another chance when Miami turned the ball over on the ensuing inbounds pass but a few shot attempts inside for the Ramblers wouldn't go.
