The 6-6 guard/forward played a key role in helping the 11th-seeded Ramblers earn their first Final Four appearance since 1963. He hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds left to lift Loyola past Miami, 64-62, in the opening round of the 2018 NCAA tournament held at American Airlines Center on March 15.
Ingram was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2018 MVC Championship after leading Loyola to a victory over Illinois State in the MVC title game. It gave the school its first NCAA Tournament berth since 1985.
