Loyola got a game-high 23 points from senior guard Ben Richardson and used a 57.4 percent shooting effort to surge ahead of and hold off K-State, 78-62, in the South Regional Semifinal at Phillips Arena Saturday.
The loss ends K-State’s 2017-18 campaign with its 25-win season in school history and the first since winning 27 games in 2012-13. The Wildcats advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the eighth time in the past 12-years, including the program’s 12th Elite Eight appearance.
