2022 Tournament PreviewThe Porter Moser era might have ended for Loyola-Chicago, but new coach Drew Valentine continued the winning ways, guiding a roster loaded with upperclassmen to the Big Dance. The Ramblers rank 27th in the nation in KenPom's experience metric, with a nine-deep rotation comprised of juniors and seniors. Led by Lucas Williamson (14.0 ppg) and Braden Norris (10.3 ppg), Loyola has a balanced offense that ranks seventh in effective field-goal percentage, including 38.0 percent on three-pointers (16th). Defensively, the Ramblers are 22nd in KenPom's efficiency metric. Furthermore, starting guard Marquise Kennedy (8.1 ppg) is healthy after missing eight games with a knee injury. This is largely the same team that upset No. 1-seed Illinois last season, and this year it owns a pair of Quad 1 wins and only one loss in Quadrants 3 and 4. With single-digit losses to Michigan State and Auburn, the Ramblers can keep things close enough to win a game or two again.
