The Loyola Chicago basketball program was the fourth team to issue its ticket to the 2021 NCAA tournament on Sunday afternoon. The ramblers with the best seeds held back the Drake Bulldogs for a 75-65 win and took the Missouri Valley Conference crown.

But not every key member of the program was able to celebrate in person on Sunday. Especially absent was 101-year-old sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt.

Sister Jean, who has long served as chaplain of the Ramblers team, was unable to go to St Louis travel. The 101-year-old became a celebrity during Loyola’s run to the Final Four in 2019 and has become a recognizable figure in college basketball in recent years.

After the team’s victory on Sunday, head coach Porter Moser spoke about Sister Jean and said he was sure she would like to travel to Indianapolis with the team for the NCAA tournament. At this point it is unclear whether she will be able to do this, but Moser said she called the team with pregame prayers during the Ramblers run last week.

# Loyola trainer Porter Moser said he knew Sister Jean wants to be in Indy with the team. Wanted to be at every game but called with prayer before the game.

According to Loyola Phoenix, Sister Jean has received both doses of the Moderna vaccine, which is fantastic to hear if she can be on the team later this month or not. However, the 101-year-old chaplain also spoke about how difficult it was to be apart from the hikers during the regular season.

« I absolutely miss talking to them and being with them and watching them pray, « said Sister Jean of Mary Chappell of The Phoenix. « When I’m with you [in person before the games] and you go out on the pitch, I’ll make a sign of the cross on your hands before you go out there. » It’s a wonderful tradition, things that we had and I hope we don’t lose them. « 

Loyola-Chicago will be rolling into March Madness with some momentum after Sunday’s win. The Ramblers were listed as an 8-seed in Joe Lunardi’s latest bracketology update.

When Sister Jean with the team in Indianapolis can be together, it is possible that Loyola will make another Cinderella run to the Final Four.
