Donte Ingram and Loyola-Chicago came through with the first big moment of the 2018 NCAA tournament.

Down 62-61 with time running out, the guard knocked down this long three to give his team the lead:

While the officials put 0.3 seconds back on the clock, the No. 11 seed held on to upset No. 6 Miami. Ingram finished with 13 points and was just 5-of-14 from the field, but he hit the shot that mattered to help his team advance to the next round.

On the other side, Miami had struggled with free throws all season, but Lonny Walker IV had been one of the best on the team at 75 percent from the stripe. Unfortunately, he missed the front end of a one-and-one and allowed Loyola to come away with the win.

The Ramblers will now take on No. 3 Tennessee in the round of 32.
