No. 3 Tennessee vs. No. 11 Loyola-Chicago: Game Time, Channel, Betting Line, Announcers, Prediction

Loyola-Chicago hits buzzer beater against Miami.

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.
