SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt was waiting at the hallway door when Loyola-Chicago's frustrated, teary-eyed players left the Final Four court.
The 98-year-old nun leaned up from her wheelchair to greet each Rambler with a hug and a few consoling words — a dozen gentle versions of solace, according to the players who love her.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A wave of positionless basketball has swept the nation. Coaches have loaded rosters with smaller, athletic players who shoot 3-pointers and beat defenders off the dribble. Three, sometimes four-guard lineups have become the norm, free-flowing the way to go.
This year's Final Four teams certainly fit the mold. These final four also have something else in common: Skilled big men who keep defenses honest, grab rebounds and protect the rim with all those smaller guys out there.
ATLANTA (AP) — Loyola-Chicago is more than just the feel-good story of the NCAA Tournament.
Sure, smiles from 98-year-old chaplain Sister Jean and visits from members of Loyola's ground-breaking 1963 championship squad generated plenty of warm and fuzzy feelings.
Those stories have overshadowed the fact these guys can play.
