A historic season for Loyola Men's Basketball
Arch Madness Champions
Loyola University Chicago's men's basketball team entered the conference tournament after an already historic 2017-2018 season. The players collected Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) hardware, guaranteed a post-season appearance, and won games like they did the last time they went to the big dance back in 1985.
Loyola traveled to St. Louis for the 2018 Missouri Valley Conference Men's Basketball Tournament as the number one seed, riding a seven-game winning streak. This weekend, they ratcheted up the streak to ten, winning all three tournament games—claiming the tournament title and earning the MVC automatic bid to the NCAA. For the first time in 33 years, Loyola is NCAA tournament-bound!
