Tennessee fought hard, but the Vols are going home early.
Instead, it will be Cinderella 11th-seed Loyola-Chicago going to the Sweet 16 thanks to yet another near-buzzer beater to defeat the Vols 63-62.
Here’s the shot from Loyola guard Clayton Cluster that ended Tennessee’s season:

The Vols had a look at the buzzer, but couldn’t get it to fall. Immediately after the final horn sounded, reaction from around the country poured in:

UNBELIEVABLE. Loyola does it again, rattled-in, falling-down bucket to beat the buzzer and knock out Tennessee. Kentucky's South Region is in shambles. Possibility remains in play that the Cats get to the Final Four without beating a single-digit seed.

Loyola-Chicago just stepped on their face with a hobnail boot and broke their nose.
