This promises to be an exciting afternoon of NCAA basketball, as Loyola goes up against Drake in this Missouri Valley Conference rivalry.
P.S. Before or after the game, stop by Ireland‘s Pub, located on the lower level of the Damen Student Center, just west of the Gentile Arena. It is Loyola University’s first and only student-run pub. Named after George Ireland, coach of the 1963 Loyola men’s basketball team that famously won the NCAA national championship, Ireland‘s offers pub-style food, including signature hot dogs, specialty sandwiches, and nachos. The pub also features an assortment of fountain drinks, wine, and local and national beers. Check out some of the great Loyola sports memorabilia on the walls while enjoying some delicious food and refreshing beverages.
