Chicago College Basketball Coach Talk: UIC Flames & Loyola Ramblers
UIC PAVILION --- Loyola University Ramblers (10-2) basketball Head Coach Porter Moser is pleased after a thrilling 81 -75 overtime victory against Steve McClain's UIC Flames (5-6). McClain's young squad turned the game completely around in a very strong second half. The Ramblers had dominated the first half capitalizing off UIC's 11 turnovers. However, the late push by the Flames was taken to a standstill when Loyola Junior Donte Ingram sank a three pointer to tie the game at the end of regulation. The Ramblers were led to victory by a clutch rebound and free throws in the overtime period also by Rambler Hoops game ball winner, Donte Ingram.
