Evansville hits clutch foul shots to beat Loyola 65-56
The Purple Aces (15-4, 4-3 Missouri Valley Conference) used a pair of runs late in the game - 11-1 and 8-0 - to stake a 10-point lead with just over four minutes to play. That's when the Ramblers (13-6, 3-4) turned up the pressure and closed to 59-56 when Jeff White hit a pair of free throws with just under a minute to go.
The Purple Aces owned a 38-23 advantage on the boards, including 28 off the defensive glass. Mockevicius also had five of Evansville's six blocked shots.
