55 years after historic game, Loyola jolts Miami

On the 55th anniversary of Loyola-Chicago's "Game of Change," this year's squad made a memory of its own, pulling off a buzzer-beating upset of Miami in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Loyola's 98-year-old chaplain said she never had a doubt.

Theo Pinson is having himself a day. 17 points, 10 rebounds and two assists (which seems low, to be honest). Hit a 3-pointer a couple minutes ago.

North Carolina takes a one-point lead into halftime after Lonnie Walker fouled Cam Johnson shooting a desperation 50-footer at the buzzer. Weird game so far. UNC couldn't do anything early, Miami got bogged down when it's ball-screen-only offense didn't work.

UNC's Joel Barry tied it up with Miami with four seconds left, but the Canes answered at the buzzer. "If we get it into overtime, we're gonna win. I hit a big time shot. Unfortunately (Ja'Quan Newton) hit a big time shot too."

Ryan McGee ESPN Senior Writer 

Roy Williams very emotional about the buzzer beater senior night loss to Miami. Speaks to the importance of the four seniors who signed at the height of "all the academic stuff" and ignored the negative recruiting that came with that.
