KWTX reported that the talk of the Men's NCAA Tournament has definitely been the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers.

They entered the tournament as an 11 seed, and have taken the nation by storm with their play. They have taken the role of "Cinderella" in this tournament, and have made it to the Final Four after a win in the Elite Eight over Kansas State by a score of 78-62.

The Ramblers are very team oriented in their play, and one of their vital parts to their success has ties right here in the Central Texas area.

Aundre Jackson spent two years at McLennan Community College playing hoops there, and he's a native of Kennedale, Texas which is near Fort Worth, Texas.

Jackson was very vital to the Ramblers win over the Nevada Wolfpack in the Sweet 16, with 15 points and a couple of very key buckets to seal that win. Jackson is beyond ecstatic to have the chance to come back to the Lone Star state and play in the Final Four next weekend.

The Loyola-Chicago Ramblers will be playing the Michigan Wolverines in the Final Four next weekend at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
