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!
