We have another high seed on upset alert in the NCAA Tournament.

No. 16 seed Penn played with Kansas for about 30 minutes, and 13th-seeded UNC Greensboro dropped a heartbreaker to No. 4 seed Gonzaga. Can Loyola Chicago finish the job?

The 11th-seeded Ramblers are tied with sixth-seeded Miami (Fla.) at halftime in Dallas. Loyola was a popular upset pick.

They even had the support of Cubs manager Joe Maddon.

Freshman center Cameron Krutwig leads the Ramblers with a game-high eight points at intermission. Both teams are shooting well.

The winner of this game will face No. 3 seed Tennessee. The Vols beat 14th-seeded Wright State convincingly.
