The University of Loyola-Chicago has announced its participation in a new conference.

The recent wave of realignment in college football appears to have spread to college basketball this November, as Loyola University Chicago announced Tuesday that it will be leaving the conference to make way for a new one.

The Ramblers and Sister Jean are on their way to the Atlantic 10.

Only two games into the 2021-22 college basketball season, Loyola-Chicago and the conference announced the news on Tuesday afternoon.

The Ramblers will leave the Missouri Valley Conference at the end of this season and join the Atlantic 10 in the fall.

“I am thrilled to announce that Loyola University Chicago will join the Atlantic 10 Conference in the 2022-23 academic year,” said Dr. Loyola.

According to a press release from the Ramblers’ new conference, Jo Ann Rooney said.

“For its success in competition and in the classroom, the A-10 is widely regarded as one of the best conferences in the country.

This move will increase our national visibility while also putting us in a group with three other Jesuit institutions.

We are confident that this is a move that will position Loyola for even greater success in the future, both athletically and academically.”

After a recent run of success in the NCAA Tournament, Loyola-Chicago has decided to move up the college basketball rankings.

During the 2020-21 season, the Ramblers went 26-5 and advanced to the Sweet Sixteen for the second time in the last four years.

The men’s basketball team reached the Final Four in 2018, which was the highlight of Loyola-Chicago’s nine years in the Missouri Valley.

The 11th-seeded Ramblers lost in the National Semifinal to Michigan, but their Cinderella run made them a fan favorite.

The Loyola-Chicago men’s basketball team underwent some significant changes this offseason.

Porter Moser, who had led the program for the previous decade, left after a successful tenure with the Ramblers to take over the Oklahoma coaching job.

Drew Valentine was named the new head coach of Loyola-Chicago, and he will now be in charge of another historic move to the Atlantic 10 Conference.

The Ramblers will have the opportunity to play against some of the best teams in the country on a nightly basis as part of the conference.

For the time being, Valentine’s focus will be on returning the program to the NCAA Tournament in 2022.

So far this season, the Ramblers have won both of their games.
