The team that everybody felt sorry for - Murray (who didn't arrive here until 2 a.m. yesterday, after the flood prevented their travel by air) - brought the crowd to it's feet when it ripped into Loyola at the start and ran off a 21-8 lead in the first 12:45. A slick outfit, the Thoroughbreds sped ahead 11-4 in the first three minutes, giving a fortaste of things to come. Varnas and Johnson, especially, were nothing short of sensational. Down by 13 points, the tall and talented Ramblers then went to work and peeled off 31 points to Murray's eight in the next few minutes to go ahead 39-26 with 6:45 left. Miller, Egan and Coleman were the big lifters during the surge. After Loyola had grabbed a 39-26 lead, the crowd relaxed, figuring Murray had shot its bolt. However the Ohio Valley Conference champs weren't through. The battled back gamely and unbelievably, outscoring the defending champs 9-2 to cut the deficit to 41-37 before Loyola exploded again to go on top 54-43 at halftime. Referees John Payak and Frank Cochran awarded Loyola 21 free chances to Murray's five in the first half. The Chicago outfit made 14 of 21 while Murray made all five. In rebounds, Loyola had only a 29-24 halftime edge. The Ramblers' field goal advantage was only 20-19. Murray's dream of a gigantic upset disappeared in a downpour of Loyola baskets early in the second half. The Ramblers rambled ahead 64-46 but Murray cut it to 65-52. Loyola then gained a 20-point lead at 76-56 with 13 1/2 minutes left and the handwriting was on the wall. Fouls continued to haunt Murray as two starters, Schlosser and big Johnson, were whistled out with eight minutes to go. Johnson the 6-8 sophomore, got a rousing round of applause when he departed with 7:20 left and Loyola holding a 92-66 bulge. Murray still battled viciously, cutting the margin to 96-83 before Loyola sent it's first sub in with 2:04 left. Egan's two frees with 1:16 left enabled Loyola to hit the century mark at 100-85. Big scorers for Murray were Jim Jennings (24 points), Al Varnas (21), Stu Johnson (18), and Gene Pendleton (15). Loyola was led by soph Jim Coleman with 27, Johnny Egan added 24, Ron Miller 21, Vic Rouse 16 and Les Hunter 13.
