What Loyola-Chicago players, coach said after beating Kansas State to earn spot in Final Four

Sister Jean is Final Four bound.

Here is what Loyola-Chicago players and head coach had to say after beating Kansas State — Loyola once had a 22-point lead — Saturday in Atlanta to reach the Final Four.

PORTER MOSER: First of all, we always talk about it, glory goes to God. We’re just so blessed with the journey. Secondly, I just — this group of guys are resilient. They believe. We’ve said it all along, game by game, they’ve just taken one game at a time and believed. Their togetherness, their body language, their effort that they invested. I’m so happy for them. To see these guys experience that is an amazing feeling as a coach, to go through, have a locker room like this. I’m just really happy for those guys.

Kentucky didn’t make a 3-point shot for the first time in 30 years — a stretch of 1,047 games — and got outscored 33-0 from 3-point range.

Kentucky coach John Calipari also thought his team play “undisciplined” at times in the second half and didn’t match the energy that Davidson had.

However, Kentucky still found a way to win 78-73 Thursday night in Boise in the NCAA Tournament South Region first round and advance to Saturday’s second round matchup against the Arizona-Buffalo winner.
