I’ll go ahead and root for Loyola since the numbers say they’re a good team even though they didn’t impress me today. Rooting against Bradley is tough though.

Barry is the easy rooting interest in the other game.

Gotta say pleasantly surprised with crowd size. Scottrade holds 22k so curtaining off upper deck was good idea. It’ll be interesting what today’s attendance #’s are.

Another absolute nail-biter in StL. Bradley is such a tough team--and so young. Loyola looked good in the 1st half, pretty terrible 2nd half. Hope it's not a sign of fatigue.

With the youth and talent at Loyola, Bradley, ISUr, SIU, etc., the next few years are going to be a lotttt of fun.

Bradley had about 4 to 5 possessions in a row to tie or take the lead and just could not make the big shot. I mean DLO who was 10 of 11 from free throw line on the day missed front end of 1 and 1. Congrats to Loyola. You are class of the valley this year. Sucks that you aren't on the bubble as you could do some damage in the tourney. Just win tomorrow I guess.

And one other note. Krutwig was amazing passing out of the post to wide open 3 point shooters. Just fun to watch someone with his high basketball iq

One part of me wants the redbirds to win a close one tomorrow because I think with Florida's recent surge Loyola can get in anyways..

The other wants Loyola to dismantle and destroy jailbird U and prove it is better to build the right way and not let criminals continue to play in your program. Nothing about Yarbrough or Lynch/Lofton/Hawkins types makes me proud or want to root for them.
