SAN ANTONIO - The Ramblers run is over.

Michigan handed Loyola its first loss since January to advance to the National Championship.

Neither team could generate much offense in the early going. Michigan mustered up a 12-4 advantage the first 8 minutes, but Loyola clawed all the way back. The Ramblers went on a 9-0 run to regain the lead before entering the break with a seven point edge.

A slew of turnovers allowed the Wolverines to get right back in it. From there, Michigan's 6'11" big man Moe Wagner was too much to handle, dropping 24 points to go along with 15 rebounds and 3 steals for a 69-57 win.

It was a magical ride for the Ramblers. There is one glimmer of hope. A lot of the guys who got Loyola to its first Final Four in 55 years will be back next year.
