The NCAA Tournament's second round is a couple of games old. We just had our first big upset of the round.

Tennessee, the No. 3 seed in the South Region, fell to No. 11 seed Loyola-Chicago. The Ramblers came into the game having beaten No. 6 seed Miami in a wild upset.

The upset came on a ridiculous shot.

Tennessee scored an and-1 with about 25 seconds to play to go up by 1 point. Loyola-Chicago got the ball and hit a floater with about 3 seconds to play.

The shot was hit by Clayton Custer.

Here's the play:

Loyola-Chicago moves onto the Sweet 16. It'll face the winner of the game between No. 2 Cincinnati and No. 7 Nevada.

A game time and TV channel will be released later this weekend.

The game will be either Thursday or Friday night.
