Florida State was knocked out of the NCAA Tournament with a 58-54 loss to MI in the Elite Eight. Loyola-Chicago is an elite defensive team, limiting the opposition to 62.4 points, placing them fifth in the nation. They have defeated a more impressive slate of teams (ACC third-place team Miami, SEC regular-season co-champ Tennessee and Mountain West champ Nevada, a Kansas State team that downed Kentucky) than MI in the tournament.

The junior guard is having an outstanding tournament, averaging 16.5 points in his last four games, increasing his season average to 13 points on a 49.6% field goal efficiency.
