Clayton Custer's 'good bounce' sends Loyola to Sweet 16

Custer's victor came two days after Donte Ingram's buzzer-beating 3 from the March Madness logo against Miami, surely to the delight of Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, the team chaplain and occasional coach, watching from her wheelchair on a platform near the main TV cameras.

They were stopped so frequently by adoring fans on the sidewalk, it was almost impossible to make it more than a few steps before another one approached.

Sister Jean, as she's affectionately called by the team and her fans, is known as Loyola's "not-so-secret weapon".

Stats can not measure what Sister Jean has done for this program. "She's a celebrity around the university and everyone loves her". She seems like a great person. Soon, she was thrust into the spotlight as the subject of a postgame television interview.

In an interview via Skype with the entertainment program, she deflected praise and lauded the team: "I think the stardom rests with the coach and with the team".

Like the other two teams, VCU's run ended in the National Semifinals as they lost to Butler 71-62.

Each time the Ramblers rallied back to get the victory, putting them in the Sweet 16 for the first time in 33 years. It was Loyola's first NCAA Tournament win since 1985.The Ramblers' next game was March 17 against the University of Tennessee. But that's what people tell me, but we have God on our side. "I think they were happy for us".

Born in San Francisco in 1919, Sister Jean played six-on-six girls' basketball in high school.

Conte has rotated his options in previous FA Cup rounds, but will field his first-choice line-up against the Foxes. We defended and played well, hit the crossbar which was unlucky on our side but the individual mistakes cost us.

The NCAA Tournament has always been about more than just basketball.

Sister Jean began teaching at Mundelein College in 1961, a school which merged with Loyola in 1991. The phrase "more than just a game" gets thrown around loosely, but any fan, journalist, or athlete will attest that the word "game" simply does not capture the emotion and magnitude of what some sporting events offer.

Loyola has been cognizant of Sister Jean's health on the trips.

Don't be fooled by the wheelchair that she's now using. A nurse accompanied her to St. Louis, and a wellness center employee traveled with her to Dallas.

The Ramblers were good but top-heavy and thin, with senior guard Milton Doyle leading four players who averaged at least eight points per game, along with junior forward Ben Richardson, one of the best defensive players in the Missouri Valley Conference. Sister Jean is as active and as sharp as they come. They are not the 191st-best team in the country. And the students deserve to celebrate. "That shows the spirit of Loyola, and we want to continue that". As of Monday, more than 2,300 people had signed it. And that's her office, too. Campus administrators recognize her for her years of selfless service to the community.

The Illinois coach drew some applause from his fellow panelists after being introduced on Turner Sports' tip-off show.

"We knew we were having to win and win the conference and then get to the conference tournament, and it's been this mentality of you win, enjoy the moment", Moser said. She also can tell you what the Ramblers' RPI was last season, this season, and that maybe it should cease to be a criteria for evaluating tournament-worthy teams.

And she'll enjoy the Ramblers' ride.

McClure said his boss had told him that he would not be fired.
