Donte Ingram joins a long history of college basketball legends after hitting the game-winning three in No. 6 Loyola’s 64-62 win over No. 11 Miami (Fla.) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday. The Ramblers advance to the second round after a thrilling upset that required Ingram’s last-second heroics.

The play came after a wild sequence where the Ramblers had an opportunity to win in the final 20 seconds but missed their shot. The Hurricanes had a chance to extend their lead after being fouled with 9.3 seconds remaining, but a missed free throw gave Loyola the chance to scramble down the court and get one last opportunity.

It initially seemed like the Hurricanes would prevent the Ramblers from getting a quality look, but Ingram found some space at the top of the key and didn’t miss with the game on the line. The senior finished with 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting and seven rebounds in the win.

This is Loyola’s first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1985. They reached the Sweet Sixteen in that competition.

Intuitive Machines, the private company that made the lander, initially believed its spacecraft was upright when it landed Thursday. But officials said Friday it almost certainly tipped over on its side, covering up some antennas and hampering communications. Intuitive Machines is the first private business to pull off a moon landing, a feat previously achieved by only five countries. And it’s the first U.S. moon landing in more than 50 years.
