The 2012-2013 Loyola Ramblers men’s basketball team has been quite the story. Head coach Porter Moser has delivered one heck of a turnaround in Rogers Park.
Last year the Ramblers finished with a dismal record of 7-23 (1-17 Horizon League). This year the Ramblers find themselves in a much better position.
Currently they are 10-3 and won their conference opener against Valparaiso on Wednesday night. The Ramblers have won four in-a-row and have not lost since December 8th.
Today the play Horizon League game No. 2 as the Penguins of Youngstown State make their way to the Gentile Center on Chicago’s North Side.
YSU is wrapping up a two-game Chicago road trip. Earlier this week they lost to the UIC Flames at the Pavilion on the West Side by a final score of 65-60.
They have now lost two of their last four, and they are hoping to get back on the winning track this afternoon. But that task will be easier said than done as the Ramblers are 6-1 on their home court this year.
Now that the nitty gritty of the conference schedule is here, this Loyola team will be truly tested. How they perform in the Horizon League will set the tone for the rest of the season.
