Bright Side

“”I was lucky enough to take a hard-hat tour of Gentile Arena earlier in the year, and the finished product is remarkable. The fans are on top of the action, which I think they enjoy, and I think will serve Loyola well in terms of building a home court advantage in the years to come. What I was fortunate to see on Saturday was the energy in Gentile. I look forward to seeing the energy continue to pick up as Porter Moser builds his program,” – Bill Potter, Director of Communications for the Horizon League.

  •  Strong recruiting class which features Matt O’Leary, Nick Osborne, Darrell Combs, and Jeff “Keke” White, all of which posted strong senior seasons and have been featured on many ranked lists.
  • Jordan Hicks, the squad’s most athletic player, will be back for one more year and Cully Payne a transfer point guard from Iowa will now be eligible to play for the Ramblers.

The reaction to the new arena was astoundingly positive and folks from all round the Horizon League loved what the athletic department did with it. Here’s what Brad Stevens had to say when Butler was in town.

  • While talking about the past of performance of Loyola Ramblers, I must say that fans are really getting a huge memory with the fair performance of the team. Where most of the teams are unable to give a solid performance, there Loyola Ramblers are performing well and deliver a good worth watching the tournament. We never compare the performance of any team, as they have quality players and favorable time.
