On Saturday afternoon, the No. 3 Tennessee Volunteers will take on the No. 11 Loyola-Chicago Ramblers in a second-round matchup in Dallas, Texas.
Preview: Tennessee and Loyola will meet on Saturday afternoon - and it's fair to say that the two teams reached the second round in very different ways. The Vols, behind solid games from Admiral Shofield and Grant Williams, led start-to-finish against Wright State, taking down the Raiders by 26 points.
Loyola, meanwhile, knocked off Miami on a buzzer-beating three-pointer by Donte Ingram. It was the program's first NCAA Tournament win in 33 years.

Loyola, midway through Thursday, has scored the biggest upset in the tournament. Tennessee probably looked the most solid of any of the top seeds.
Prediction: Loyola will be a pretty big underdog, despite already taking down one major opponent. Our best guess? Tennessee dominates from start to finish, cruising into the Sweet 16. The Vols are likely too deep.
