    CHICAGO -- Gary Talton's layup with 2 seconds to play gave Illinois-Chicago a 61-59 victory over Loyola of Chicago Wednesday night.

    Talton, who led the Flames (11-7, 2/3 Horizon) with 14 points, also hit a 3-pointer with 2:16 to play to tie the game at 57. Loyola's Ben Averkamp scored to restore the Ramblers' lead, but Josh Crittle's basket tied it again for UIC. After Talton's go-ahead basket, Averkamp's 3-point try bounced off the rim at the buzzer.

    Crittle had 12 points and seven rebounds for Illinois-Chicago, which snapped a three-game losing streak.

    Christian Thomas scored 16 points and Averkamp finished with 14 for the Ramblers (10-7, 1-4), who have lost four in a row -- three by either one or two points.
