Number four Loyola (5-12-2, 4-2-2) will host fifth-seeded Butler (7-11-1, 3-4-1) in the other quarterfinal on Sunday with top-seeded Milwaukee (10-5-3, 8-0) hosting the lowest remaining seed in the second semifinal beginning at 7:30 p.m. on November 6.  The championships match will also take place in Milwaukee on November 8 at 1 p.m.
