Not the result they wanted at Gentile Arena as Loyola's incredible season comes to an end.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Loyola-Chicago became the fourth 11-seed to secure a spot in the Final Four with its run to San Antonio. Few picked the Ramblers to reach this stage, but six minutes into the second half of their matchup against Michigan, they had a double-digit lead. And then the dream died after a memorable ride. The Ramblers gave us a famous nun (Sister Jean), buzzer-beaters, clutch shots, surprising wins and the best storyline of the entire NCAA tournament. They put on a performance we'll never forget.
