None of Loyola’s current players were alive the final time the Ramblers upset a high-5 team. Which was back in 1984, when Loyola (IL) beat No. 4 Illinois 63-62 inside a season where the Ramblers advanced towards the Sweet 16, where they fell to No. 1 seed and national runner-up Georgetown.
GATORS GET CHOMPED again!
It had been Florida’s third consecutive loss and it is second consecutively for an unranked opponent. Before season, the Gators were 18-one in program history in your own home when rated like a top-5 team while playing an unranked opponent, based on Stats & Info. They are now -2 since Monday.
Loyola shot 52 percent in the field, 50 % from three-point range and merely shy of 78 percent in the free throw line. Aundre Jackson scored a game title-high 23 points on 10-of-12 shooting, while Cameron Krutwig scored 14 points and Donte Ingram chipped in 11.
For Florida? Well, the Gators’ shooting splits were 36.9/10.5/64.3 % because they were held for their cheapest point total of year. None of the players scored in double figures.
