Charles Matthews chipped in 17 points, five rebounds, and three steals for MI as well.

"I stand here or sit here and could not be more proud of a group than I am of this group", Loyola coach Porter Moser said in his postgame news conference.

As Michigan's basketball coach, he had to find an answer, and the short-term response in the first half was to order Wagner to roll hard off every ball screen and clean up whatever offensive rebounds were available. Rebounds-Loyola of Chicago 31 (Ingram 9), MI 35 (Wagner 14).

MI had the nation's No. 3 defense efficiency-wise and put Loyola on lockdown in the second half, forcing the Ramblers into a rash of turnovers to race away.

"Wow. If you put it like that, it's probably cool", said Wagner, who was so active that he twice had to jump off the court and onto press row, the second time breaking broadcaster Bill Raftery's glasses.

"We had eight turnovers in the first half". Wagner was almost unstoppable on the boards, collecting a double-double at the 3:08 mark of the first frame.

Loyola's recruits for next season are ranked as three-star players: 6-9 center Franklin Agunanne from La Lumiere in IN, 6-3 shooting guard Cooper Kaifes from Kansas and 6-2 point guard Isaiah Bujdoso from Washington.

"Not dropping our heads, that was the main thing", Simmons said.

"And I tried to do my job, tried not to foul and stay solid, build walls and grab rebounds".

"I just knew it, it had that feeling", Abdur-Rahkman said.

Cameron Krutwig, Loyola's big man, scored 17 points and Clayton Custer had 13 of his 15 after halftime.

Krutwig was a major factor in facing up Mo Wagner and using an array of post moves and hook shots to score 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting. The Wolverines' D grew more active, forcing Loyola into tougher shots and shorter possessions. It was as good of a spurt as they've had all year. "I thought was unbelievable". "They closed that gap of opportunity in a hurry". MI struggled too and, at one point, both teams had as many turnovers as field goals. "It's a lot more fun when the ball goes through the net". But his Wolverines? After all they'd been through, they weren't supposed to be down double-digits, struggling to buy a bucket in the Final Four. A 9-0 run restored confidence and reinvigorated the Ramblers with the help of Marques Townes, their best player in the first half whose second-half injury limited Loyola. "But unfortunate for us, obviously, to go through that drought". Sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt and her favorite team, the Missouri Valley Conference champions, making their first NCAA appearance since 1985, will return to Chicago as heroes, regardless.

Loyola: Actors Bob Newhart, Leslie David Baker and Jennifer Morrison; Chicago Bears owner George Halas Jr.; Chicago Cubs owner Todd Ricketts; Disturbed singer David Draiman; Smashing Pumpkins and Perfect Circle guitarist James Iha; Dr. Scholl's founder William Scholl; US Secretary of Commerce William M. Daley. That seemed to be the tell-all of a game where Loyola led for almost 21 of the game's 40 minutes.
