It turns out Donte Ingram’s knee is more than fine. Ingram, a 6’6″ junior, returned from an MCL sprain Saturday to score 20 points and lead Loyola past crosstown rival UIC on the road.
Ingram drained a desperation 3-pointer from one second remaining in regulation to force overtime. In the extra period, his layup with 1:12 remaining broke a 73-73 tie as Loyola (10-2) went on to win 81-75.

Senior guard Milton Doyle also turned in a strong performance with a game-high 22 points along with 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 5 steals and 2 blocks. He also had one of the game’s best highlights on an alley-oop slam in the first half.

The Ramblers became the 31st MVC team in the past 20 seasons to win 10 or more non-conference games. This is the second time in the last three years the Ramblers have achieved that accomplishment.
They will look to extend their winning streak further at Toledo on Tuesday.
