Loyola Ramblers men's basketball has played at the Joseph J. Gentile Arena since 1996, before when they had spent a long period playing at the Rosemont Horizon. The 1962–1963 men's basketball team, led by coach George Ireland, won the 1963 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, by defeating the University of Cincinnati, 60-58, in the title game. Vic Rouse tipped in the winning bucket in overtime to win the game.
Loyola made it to the finals of the National Invitation Tournaments (NIT), in 1939 and 1949 and the 'Sweet Sixteen' of the 1964 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament and 1985 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.
In 2013, the Ramblers were defeated by the UCI Anteaters 0–3 (24–26, 18–25, 27–29) in the first semifinal of the NCAA championships on May 2, 2013 at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion. This was the teams first appearance ever in an NCAA men's collegiate volleyball tournament.
On May 3, 2014, Loyola, playing host to the 2014 Championships, defeated the Stanford Cardinal 3-1 to win the program's first-ever NCAA Men's National Collegiate Volleyball Championship.
