This Prayer Delivered By Sister Jean May Have Helped Loyola Win

You probably heard...Loyola beat Illinois over the weekend which pushes them forward to the Sweet 16! Some are attributing the win to a prayer Sister Jean gave before the game:

Before taking in most of this game from the luxury suite -- sitting in her wheelchair and decked out in her trademark maroon and gold scarf -- Jean delivered a pregame prayer that could've been stripped straight from a John Wooden handbook.

"As we play the Fighting Illini, we ask for special help to overcome this team and get a great win," she said. "We hope to score early and make our opponents nervous. We have a great opportunity to convert rebounds as this team makes about 50% of layups and 30% of its 3 points. Our defense can take care of that."

I don't know what any of that means, but seems like it worked!
