Sister Jean consoles Loyola players after Cinderella season ends in Final Four

Sister Jean consoles Loyola players after Cinderella season ends in Final Four

"They bring instant energy, especially this kid here", Matthews told Sporting News, pointing to Poole. Jalen Brunson, the AP national player of the year added 18 points, while Omari Spellman and Donte DiVincenzo each had 15. "She's an incredible person".

Sister Jean also addressed the comments by Jalen Rose's 100-year-old grandmother, Mary Belle Hicks, that the No. 3 Wolverines would beat the No. 11 Ramblers. "We love Sister Jean". For this improbable trip to the Final Four, there was no question she would be right on the scene. It built a 10-point lead early in the second half and stayed ahead until seven minutes remained, but then the dream expired.

The Wolverines (33-7) will either face the Villanova Wildcats or the Kansas Jayhawks on Monday at the Alamodome. But this time, the nun consoled the players after her prayers went unanswered.

They flipped that switch to defeat the Ramblers. "And despite going out this way, we're going to never forget this". "I feel like if we had taken care of the ball a little bit better we could have converted a couple more baskets and stopped the bleeding".

"When I walked off the floor, I was asked what I said to them", Ramblers head coach Porter Moser said.

"It was as tough a locker room as I've seen", Moser said. They wanted to extend this Loyola-palooza another 48 hours, but this was Michigan's night to party.

The Chicago native was a good outside shooter who played bigger than his 6-foot-6 size.

Moritz Wagner (24 points, 15 rebounds) and Charles Matthews (17 points) combined to shoot 17-for-28 from the field.

With the game out of reach for Loyola after MI took a commanding eight-point lead late in the second half, Sister Jean left the building from her prominent first row post - and did not return.

MI coach John Beilein's stingiest defensive team in 11 years responded to the urgency of a 10-point deficit, at 41-31 with 14:08 left following seven straight points from Custer, who scored 13 of his 15 after halftime.

After falling behind by seven at halftime, MI saw the lead grow to 10 at 41-31 with 14:08 to play following a jump shot by Clayton Custer.

When the whole binge on one end and purge on the other got finished with 2:13 left and MI ahead 61-51, the last of Loyola Chicago's month of fetching resistance had faded. That's three returning starters and four players who averaged at least 20 minutes and four points per game.

Jaaron Simmons, in for Simpson, hit a big triple that made it 43-37 at 11:40. "And I think a lot of people will remember this run for a long time". "So not dropping our heads was one of the main adjustments we had to make".

Slowly but surely, MI stayed in it. Loyola went on a three-minute scoring drought and Wagner tied things up with a triple from the corner before Jordan Poole put MI in front, 49-47, with a pair of free throws at the 6:20 mark of the second half.
