The weather was bad news Monday for Loyola as it attempted to get to Wichita to face the No. 5 Shockers Tuesday in a Missouri Valley Conference game.
But the good news was another conference weekly honor for freshman Milton Doyle.
The 6-4 guard from Marshall in Chicago was named the newcomer of the week, the fourth time this season Doyle has been honored.
Doyle scored 28 points in helping the Ramblers defeat Northern Iowa 93-87 in overtime Saturday. Doyle scored eight points in overtime after the Ramblers came from behind to tie the Panthers in regulation with 17 seconds left.
Doyle is leading the Ramblers in scoring averaging 16.0 points per game.
Doyle and his teammates were delayed getting to Wichita Monday after their original flight was canceled because of weather. The team was hoping to take an alternate flight to Kansas City Monday afternoon and then bussing to Wichita.
Their Tuesday game is scheduled for 7 p.m.
