Kimble’s late 3 lifts Saint Joseph’s past Loyola-Chicago

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Lamarr Kimble made a deep 3-pointer with 0.5 seconds left to give Saint Joseph’s a 45-42 victory over Loyola-Chicago on Saturday night.

Kimble, a third-year captain who has battled injury problems the last two seasons, had the lane open yet pulled up for the game-winning shot that hit nothing but net. Following a timeout, the Ramblers threw the ball full court but weren’t able to get off a shot.

Kimble led the Hawks with 15 points. Charlie Brown added 11 points for Saint Joseph’s (6-5), which rebounded from a 70-58 loss at then-No. 21 Villanova on Dec. 8.

Clayton Custer scored 12 points and Marques Townes had 10 for Loyola-Chicago (7-6), which had a two-game win streak snapped.
