    ST. LOUIS -- Milton Doyle's 3-pointer with 1 second to play lifted Loyola of Chicago 74-72 over Bradley Thursday night for a first-round Missouri Valley Conference tournament win.

    The No. 10 seeded Ramblers (10-21), an MVC newcomer, advance to play No. 2 seeded Indiana State (21-9) on Friday. The win snaps a six-game losing streak for Loyola.

    Loyola led 43-35 at halftime, and went up by 11 in the second on a layup by Christian Thomas at 7:38. But No. 7 seeded Bradley rallied, and Walt Lemon cut the lead to 62-60 with a dunk, and hit two free throws with 5 seconds to play to put Bradley up 72-71. Doyle got the inbounds pass and made his game-winner with 1 second to go.

    Doyle finished with 19, Jeff White and Devon Turk had 14 apiece, and Thomas had 12.

    Tyshon Pickett had 25 for Bradley (12-20), Lemon 24 and Omari Grier 12.
