Happy New Year to all of our Loyola friends and family! We are exciting for the new opportunities and joys 2017 will bring us. With that being said, what a way to kick off the new year than with some Ramblers basketball live from Gentile Arena.

Today our Ramblers (10-4) face off against the ISU Redbirds (9-4) as Loyola puts in seven-game home win streak on line. This is Loyola's second game of Missouri Valley conference play coming off a road 102-98 loss at Drake. Let's hope neither team is sluggish from their New Year's Eve celebrations and can come out of the gate with good energy.
