CHICAGO -- Jordan Hicks scored 26 points and Loyola of Chicago defeated Cleveland State 87-60 on Saturday in the Horizon League regular-season finale for both teams.
Hicks also had a game-high seven rebounds for the Ramblers (15-15, 5-11), who moved ahead of the Vikings for the No. 7 seed in next week's Horizon tournament. Loyola will play at Youngstown State on Tuesday in a first-round game.
The Vikings will play at Illinois-Chicago on Tuesday night.
Purdue coach Matt Painter says players haven't used the fifth-year graduate transfer rule for its true intent.

The 2017 recruiting class is short on point guards, with Trevon Duval leading only eight prospects from the ESPN 60 who are still available.
