Sister Jean may be Loyola Chicago’s biggest fan. But she’s not about to let her heart fill out her March Madness bracket.

The adorable 98-year-old nun-turned-media darling has served as chaplain for the Loyola men’s basketball team since 1994. She leads the team’s pre-game prayers. She provides moral support. She provides scouting reports. And she celebrates their wins like she’s part of the team. Because she is part of the team.

However, when it comes to bracketology, Sister Jean is in it to win it. Take a look at this report from TNT’s Ros Gold-Onwude:


That’s right. Despite her love for the Ramblers, Sister Jean’s bracket had Loyola losing in the Sweet 16.

Well, as you probably know, on Thursday the 11th-seeded Ramblers pulled off another upset, defeating the 7th-seeded Nevada Wolfpack 69-68 in the Sweet 16, advancing to the Elite Eight for the first time since 1963.


In her post-game interview, Sister Jean said Loyola point guard Clayton Custer came up to her afterward and apologized for busting her bracket, and that she told him it was totally worth it:


I wonder how much money Sister Jean lost on that game?
