While Jimmy Patsos uncorked a virtuoso postgame news conference when Loyola won the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title last week, Shane Walker was transfixed by something far less animated than his gregarious coach.
An overview of Loyola as it heads into the NCAA tournament as a No. 15 seed.
"It just made me more hungry just to get there," said Walker, whose 15th-seeded Greyhounds (24-8) face second-seeded Ohio State (27-7) on Thursday in Pittsburgh.
"It means the world to me," Walker said. "It means so much that I can do this, not just for our team, but the whole community. Not just Loyola University, but the people of Baltimore as well. It's indescribable how much it means to me. I'm just happy for some of the guys who may never get this chance again."
