Loy­ola (Chicago) vs. Mi­ami

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - SPORTS -

WHY IT WILL HAP­PEN: The Ram­blers — Loy­ola def­i­nitely has the bet­ter nick­name — make nearly 40 per­cent of their 3-point­ers, near the best in the sport. If they try enough of them, they will put the game out of reach. Look for Iowa State trans­fer Clay­ton Clus­ter (an­other great name) to take over.

WHY IT MIGHT NOT: You don’t come in third in the ACC, as Mi­ami did, by be­ing bad. Jim Lar­rañaga is a Fi­nal Four coach.

X FACTOR: Be­fit­ting their un­der­dog sta­tus, the Ram­blers are small. If they miss a lot and Mi­ami dom­i­nates the boards, they won’t stand a chance. So­lu­tion: They should try to make their shots go in the bas­ket.
