Loyola University of Illinois will accept the Missouri Valley Conference's invitation to join the conference this summer, the Chicago Sun Times reported.
Loyola is moving from the Horizon League and was one of four schools under consideration by the Missouri Valley Conference to replace Creighton, which will move to the new Big East.
Illinois-Chicago, Valparaiso and Missouri-Kansas City were the three other schools being considered, according to the report.
Loyola is expected to announce the move Friday.
