What to Know

The Loyola Chicago Ramblers won both of their matches against the Indiana State Sycamores last season (58-48 and 65-49) and are aiming for the same result on Wednesday. Loyola Chicago and Indiana State will face off in a Missouri Valley battle at 8 p.m. ET at Joseph J. Gentile Center. The Ramblers are out to keep their four-game home win streak alive.

Loyola Chicago strolled past the Arizona State Sun Devils with points to spare last Friday, taking the game 77-59. Among those leading the charge for Loyola Chicago was center Jacob Hutson, who had 26 points in addition to five rebounds.

Meanwhile, Indiana State has to be hurting after a devastating 97-75 defeat at the hands of the Ball State Cardinals on Saturday. It was supposed to be a close contest, and the Sycamores were supposed to come out on top, but neither of those things ended up happening.

This next matchup looks promising for the Ramblers, who are favored by a full 18 points. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

Loyola Chicago's win lifted them to 5-2 while Indiana State's loss dropped them down to 3-4. We'll see if Loyola Chicago can repeat their recent success or if Indiana State bounces back and reverse their fortune.
