How A 98-Year-Old Nun Became A March Madness Star

Since the Ramblers' victory Friday night, Sister Jean has been involved in many interviews at the team hotel in Texas and even was acknowledged by President Obama via Twitter.

The 11th seeded Loyola Ramblers are the talk of the tournament with back to back wins over Miami and Tennessee.

A computer science professor at the University of Illinois, Jacobson has developed a formula that predicts NCAA Tournament upsets twice as often as someone picking winners at random.

From the TNT broadcast: "The team found out that Sister Jean has a bracket, but she got Loyola-Chicago losing in the Sweet 16". Parker handled the loss with class, making an appeal to Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt: "If you are willing to allow me to jump on the bandwagon of Loyola, I am willing to join the party. It's just brought so many happy memories to me, and I'm really happy to be saying good morning to all of America today".

That comeback was the second-biggest in tournament history, so the "R" word has been used a lot for Nevada as they prepare for their South Region semifinal against Loyola on Thursday. And they did it at the hand of Donte Ingram, their first Simeon player since 1986.

The Nevada Wolf Pack are looking for their 30th win of the season.

Another program that made it to the Sweet 16 despite the odds being stacked against them was the 11th seeded Loyola-Chicago Ramblers. Tennessee eventually got its first lead 62-61 behind Grant Williams' three-point play.

Her "Cinderella dream" bracket has the Ramblers going all the way to the championship game.

Sister Jean is most often decked out in Loyola gear and wearing her trademark maroon Nike tennis shoes with gold laces that have "Sister" stitched onto the heel of her left shoe and "Jean" stitched on the heel of her right shoe. "He makes it like a 98 percent clip".

The No. 3 Volunteers apparently didn't heed her advice.

Admiral Schofield scored 11 of those first 15 Tennessee points but didn't score again until a 3 almost 32 minutes later that started a rally from a 10-point deficit in the final 4 minutes by the SEC regular-season co-champions.

It was Custer's first game at Loyola-Chicago in 2015, a redshirt season after transferring from Iowa State. "We weren't going to bend on the academic reputation", he said.

"It's great to get some exposure for our school and our fans", Richardson said. Senior forward Aundre Jackson led the Ramblers with 16 points and four rebounds, including 6-6 free throws. Schofield scored 14 for Tennessee. The upset was cause to recall Harvard's 16th-seeded women downing No. 1 Stanford 71-67 in their Division I tournament 20 years earlier. "She's the biggest Loyola fan I've ever met in my entire life". The Ramblers probably won't have to wait another 33 years this time.
