The Sweet 16 is underway. Already, we have an upset brewing.

Loyola, the No. 11 seed in the South Region, has already beaten two single-digit seeds. The Ramblers are looking to increase that number to three tonight.

The team that's been led by Sister Jean got off to a poor start against No. 7 seed Nevada tonight. They trailed by double digits early in the first half.

Things have changed, though.

Loyola has taken the lead heading into halftime. The squad looks good.

After 20 minutes, it's Loyola 28, Nevada 24.

The second half is going to be fun.

Nevada went crazy cold at the end of the first half. The Wolf Pack didn't hit a shot for more than 7 minutes.

This is a team of runs, though. The second half is sure to be crazy because of it.
