March Madness Recap: Michigan vs. Loyola-Chicago Betting Odds

05 April 2018

Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt became a national celebrity as the team chaplain for the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers during their Cinderella run to the Final Four in the 2018 NCAA men's basketball tournament, but she is taking a step out of the spotlight after Saturday's loss.

Loyola and MI play Saturday night in the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament. Loyola tied the game at 15 with 6:47 left to play in the first half and proceed to start a run that would take them to a 29-22 halftime lead. The Ramblers had no answer for MI star Moe Wagner.

Loyola-Chicago is only the fourth No. 11 seed to reach the national semifinals. The win also marked the 799th win overall for MI head coach John Beilein.

Two of Loyola's best players, senior guard Ben Richardson and junior guard Clayton Custer, had an emotional embrace after the loss.

" I'm very proud of them and I'm very happy to say that we made it this far", says Loyola freshman Karrington Jones.

The Wildcats made a Final Four-record 18 3-pointers and Eric Paschall scored 24 points on 10-of-11 shooting as Villanova cruised to victory in a battle of No. 1 seeds.

Jaaron Simmons, Simpson's backup, made a 3 and Duncan Robinson hit another a few minutes later and the deficit was down to 45-42 with 10 minutes left.

Brutal, but Sister Jean will forever live in our hearts and will remain one of the brightest stars we have ever seen during March Madness.

For a while, however, the Wolverines, a No. 3 seed, appeared to be in trouble. "Despite going out this way, were going to never forget this". MI refused to fade, even with point guard Zavier Simpson - whose solid play has been critical to the Wolverines' late-season surge - playing terribly. His work has been featured on Sports Illustrated, ESPN.com, FOXSports.com, CBSSports.com and many others.
