CHICAGO -- — Tate Hall had 13 points off the bench to lead Loyola of Chicago to an 88-46 win over Northern Iowa on Sunday, the Ramblers’ eighth consecutive home victory.
After scoring a season-low 24 points in the first half, Northern Iowa was dominated 49-22 in the second.
Noah Carter had 11 points for the Panthers (3-10, 2-6).
Loyola of Chicago's sweep of Northern Iowa sets up clashes that could define the MVC race. After a midweek trip to winless Valparaiso, the Ramblers play two against Bradley (3-1) next weekend and then two at Missouri State (5-1) the following weekend.
