Loyola with the eighth seed sent No. 1 seed Illinois pack in a 71-58 defensive stunner on the way to the Ramblers’ second Sweet Sixteen gig in four years

Loyola students stormed onto Sheridan Road along their Rogers Park campus after last buzzer

Earlier in the day, 101-year-old fan-favorite sister, Jean Dolores Schmidt, said her pre-game prayer asking the Ramblers to keep Illinois out of the three-point range at 30%, and they performed perfectly and kept the Illinois on 286% behind the arc

Illinois has the No. earned 1 seed for the first time since his Final Four run in 2005

While the CBS studio panel praised the Ramblers at half time, three of the four expected Illinois would return to win in the second half after falling behind double digits in the first half

The lonely holdover? Greg Gumbel, who grew up in Chicago and graduated from De La Salle refused to make a choice when pressed by Clark Kellogg, instead saying, “I’m telling Sister Jean about you all”


Ultimately, Loyola’s defense proved too suffocating for USA Today Player of the Year Ayo Dosunmu, who was kept at nine points

“Another fairy tale ride is underway,” said CBS play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz after the time ran out, adding a few minutes later, “Cinderella is in the tournament”

Then came more camera time for Sister Jean, the 101-year-old nun who rose to fame during Loyola’s Final Four run in 2018 and was on Game Sunday

Indeed, not many predicted this victory for the walkers, but Sister Jean banned them to reach the Elite Eight
