Can Loyola stay alive as the lowest seed ledt in the tournament? only one 11-seed in the past decade has made it to the Final Four, and this Ramblers squad has the lineup to be the second.
But they'll need to get by a Kansas State team that is riding high after a big victory over Kentucky. Dean Wade could be the difference in this one. He didn't play much against Kentucky, and if he's unable to be a significant contributor again, Loyola might be able to shoot past the Wildcats.
