DALLAS -- Sister Jean told Tennessee to "watch out." And now the Vols have become the latest victim of Loyola's March magic.
Loyola-Chicago is this season's first double-digit seed into the Sweet 16 after a dramatic 63-62 victory over No. 3 seed Tennessee and it did it with yet another dramatic buzzer-beating finish.

Houston vs Michigan...It had a dramatic ending also...
Depending on what happens tomorrow, they could end up playing Cincinnati in the Sweet 16 round - in 1963 the Ramblers beat the Bearcats in OT for the national championship.
The only way anybody has bracket picks still standing would be if they threw darts and had lottery luck.....or a woman from an office pool who went by mascots: Yes, that happened.
50% of my bracket is dead. My Final 4 picks coming out of the East & South are gone. KU is still alive as my overall National Champion but that’s my only hope. Newest lesson for bracket success: never pick against a team that’s backed by a 98-year-old nun as their chaplain.
Loyola-Chicago won it back in 1964.
One of Purdue’s main players sustained an injury to his arm, this could hurt Purdue’s chances who tip off against Butler in a few hour, a team who already look very good.
Go Loyola! Go Sister Jean! It had to be this way on St Patricks Day! Sorry Tennessee.
Im in bad shape too but can still get three out of the Final Four. Its alwYs a crap shoot.....
Loyola played well and deserved the win, but they were very fortunate tbat Tennessee’s starting center, Kyle Alexander, missed the game with an injury.
The biggest bracket challenges tracked by the NCAA show no unbroken brackets heading into the Second Round. I believe the history is that brackets unbroken after the first 20 games in the First Round are very, very rare.
