Rafferty made a layup and then converted a 3-point play to give the Paladins (2-0) the first lead of the second half at 56-54 with 55 seconds left. Marques Townes and Rafferty traded two free throws apiece before Clayton Custer’s layup with 23 seconds remaining made it 58-all. Rafferty picked up his dribble and, as a double team came, led the back-cutting Mounce for the winner.
Custer’s half-court heave as time expired missed off the front of the rim.
Custer led Loyola (1-1) with 19 points, Lucas Williamson had 12 points and 11 rebounds and Townes scored 10.
The Ramblers had their 16-game nonconference home win streak snapped.
