Evanston's Nibra White applies pressure to Loyola's Kevin Kucera as he drives to the basket. | Jerry Daliege~for Sun-Times Media

Loyola 42, Evanston 35

The star

Minus injured guards Peter Pujals, Richie Wehman and James Clarke, Loyola got a boost from Kevin Kucera. The junior point guard delivered Saturday night in Evanston, scoring 13 points to help the Ramblers (6-1) earn the nonconference victory.

The moment

Loyola junior sharpshooter Jack Morrissey (15 points), who hit one of his first 11 shots from the field, drained back-to-back three-pointers in the fourth quarter, turning a one-point deficit into a five-point lead.

The quote

“Jack [Morrissey] is the best shooter I’ve ever coached, [but] he’s going to have bad shooting nights. But good shooters keep on shooting. It wasn’t his night shooting. But he hung in there and came through big time in the fourth quarter.” — Loyola coach Tom Livatino

The breakdown

Loyola trailed 22-15 at the break, but its zone intensity up after halftime. The Wildkits (4-5) committed several turnovers and hit one field goal in the third quarter en route to 13 second-half points. Senior Pete Winslow and juniors Demetrius Bogan and Jack Kremin paced Evanston with six points apiece.
