Sister Jean is the star of the 2018 NCAA Tournament, so ahead of Saturday’s Final Four clash between No. 11 seed Loyola-Chicago and No. 3 seed Michigan it was no surprise that the Ramblers team chaplain was surrounded by cameras.
One of the questions that came up during her session was regarding a message from Jalen Rose’s 100-year-old grandma, who said Loyola-Chicago’s Cinderella run is going to come to an end.
Sister Jean saw the message and had a perfect response.
“I saw it on Facebook the other day,” she said, via Sports Illustrated.
“Somebody said, ‘Maybe you need a pair of boxing gloves,’ and I said, ‘Well, we’ll see what happens.’ I hope we see each other. I hope we meet there. I love to meet people.”
You know the meeting is going to take place and the cameras will be watching.
Loyola-Chicago and Michigan take the court at San Antonion’s Alamodome at 6:09 p.m. ET in the first of Saturday’s Final Four matchup.
Loyola-Chicago, along with Sister Jean, made its way to the Final Four out of the South Region with wins over No. 6 Miami, No. 3 Tennessee, No. 7 Nevada and No. 9 Kansas State. Michigan, meanwhile, took down No. 14 Montana, No. 6 Houston, No. 7 Texas A&M and No. 9 Florida State in the West Region.
The winner will advance to the national championship game where they will take on one of the tournament’s remaining No. 1 seeds, Villanova and Kansas, on Monday night.
