Sister Jean adorably accepts Tennessee legend Candace Parker into Loyola-Chicago bandwagon

Sister Jean adorably accepts Tennessee legend Candace Parker into Loyola-Chicago bandwagon

Loyola, an 11 seed, is in the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1985. Sister Jean had compiled a scouting report of his team.

On Thursday, the No. 7 Nevada Wolf Pack take on the No. 11 Loyola-Chicago Ramblers in the Sweet 16 of the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

Keep up with the latest from the NCAA Tournament.

They broke that mark two days later, when Clayton Custer's jumper got a friendly bounce off the rim with 3.6 seconds left for a win over Tennessee.

"The only thing I can say, glory to God for that one", Custer said. The 22-point comeback vs. the Bearcats is the second largest in NCAA Tournament history.

"That's a tribute to the way they play - they play super hard".

The Missouri Valley champions broke the school record for wins set by the 1963 NCAA championship team.

"Having her here blessing our team and blessing our coaching staff, giving us a warm prayer before the game, having her bless the team right before the game, it just means so much", Townes was quoted as saying.

No. 3 seed Tennessee (26-7) took its only lead of the second half on a three-point play by Grant Williams with 20 seconds remaining. "But I have a second bracket, which I call the Cinderella dream bracket, where I have them going to the final game".

The Vols' Jordan Bone got a decent look at last-gasp 3, but it bounced away, and Custer threw the ball off the scoreboard high above the court as he was mobbed by teammates in the same spot that the Ramblers celebrated Ingram's dramatic victor.

But she has the Ramblers losing in the Sweet 16. which means now they have to prove their biggest fan wrong. Returning to California after entering the convent in Iowa - she joined the order in 1937 when she was 18 - she taught elementary school and volunteered as a coach in public schools in Los Angeles when she was teaching in that city.

ESPN's Basketball Power Index predicts a close one in this match-up, giving Nevada just a 55.9% edge. The Wolfpack defeated Texas and Cincinnati in their two tournament games, and the Ramblers defeated Miami and Tennessee in their path to this contest. "We weren't going to bend on the academic reputation", he said. "They had the ball with a chance to win, and they did it". Coach Porter Moser screamed in front of his section, told his family he loved them and came back for a second hug with Sister Jean, the team's 98-year-old chaplain who watches the game in her wheelchair.

"It's great to get some exposure for our school and our fans", Richardson said. We've got high-character kids, and it was a credit to them. Schofield scored 14 for Tennessee. "The first game (as a freshman), it caught me off guard". The Ramblers probably won't have to wait another 33 years this time.
