DeKalb, IL (Sports Network) - Ben Averkamp's double-double led the Loyola- Chicago Ramblers to a 53-46 road victory over the Northern Illinois Huskies at the Convocation Center.

Averkamp scored 15 points, grabbed 10 boards and had three steals for the Ramblers (4-2), who also got 10 points from Cully Payne. The Ramblers won despite assisting on only five of 14 made field goals.

Akeem Springs scored 15 points to lead the Huskies (1-3), who struggled shooting all afternoon. They shot just 29.8 percent from the floor including a 3-of-14 effort from beyond the arc
