CHICAGO (AP) — Loyola-Chicago charmed the nation last season with a stunning Final Four run that turned a 98-year-old nun named Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt into a national — no, international — celebrity.
The Ramblers know what comes next: Everyone else's best shot.
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt and her Loyola-Chicago Ramblers brought their Final Four fame to the state Capitol.
The 98-year-old Catholic nun is a chaplain of the team that made it to the NCAA men's basketball tournament's semi-final game before losing to Michigan 69-57.
She, Ramblers Coach Porter Moser and several cagers from the 32-6 team were lauded Wednesday in separate ceremonies in the House and Senate.
CHICAGO (AP) — Loyola-Chicago rewarded coach Porter Moser with a new contract through the 2025-26 season for a captivating Final Four run on Wednesday.
Though financial terms were not announced, Moser figured to be in line for a raise after the Ramblers captured the nation's imagination last month.
CHICAGO (AP) — Sister Jean did just fine on the diamond, too.
The popular 98-year-old chaplain of the Loyola-Chicago basketball team that reached the Final Four switched sports Tuesday, throwing out a first ball before the Cubs' home opener.
Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt drew a big cheer at Wrigley Field when she made an underhand toss from her wheelchair. She laughed as the ball bounced toward home plate.
CHICAGO (AP) — An unforgettable run to the Final Four is over, but the memories won't be fading anytime soon.
Loyola-Chicago captured the imagination of a nation and even turned a lovable 98-year-old nun named Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt into a celebrity, with shirts and bobbleheads flying off the racks and memes filling social media feeds.
It was fun while it lasted. And while the run ended with a loss to Michigan in the semifinals on Saturday, the Ramblers insist this is just the beginning.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Loyola-Chicago's miraculous run to the Final Four will be remembered for clutch shots, the "Wall of Culture," a couple of guards who have been playing together since grade-school and, of course, Sister Jean.
CHICAGO (AP) — The black-and-white photo on the back wall of his office serves as a constant reminder and inspiration for Loyola-Chicago coach Porter Moser.
Les Hunter, Jerry Harkness and John Egan are standing with the 1963 NCAA championship trophy, the net draped over it. Coach George Ireland has his right arm extended in front as he shakes hands with someone whose face is not in the picture.
A big believer in asking for advice, Loyola-Chicago coach Porter Moser is in the process of tapping into his friends and associates in search of a few Final Four hacks.
Moser did not want to reveal during a teleconference Monday with reporters to whom he was turning for tips. He did mention one person he would have liked to have been able to connect with during the last phase of the Ramblers' improbable NCAA Tournament run.
ATLANTA (AP) — Porter Moser stood in front of the scarf-clad Loyola cheering section, a bit dazed but beaming from ear to ear.
"Are you kidding me! Are you kidding me!" the Ramblers coach screamed over and over.
Loyola is headed to the Final Four .
ATLANTA (AP) — With Loyola-Chicago's captivating NCAA Tournament run hanging in the balance, it was Marques Townes' turn to deliver another memorable finish.
Townes had scored only a combined 15 points in Loyola's first two NCAA Tournament games, but that didn't concern Ramblers coach Porter Moser. Townes had the ball in front of the Loyola bench in the final seconds Thursday night and the shot clock about to expire.
CHICAGO (AP) — These sure are sweet times for Loyola-Chicago.
Two last-second shots — two prayers answered — vaulted the Ramblers to the Sweet 16 and placed them right in the national spotlight.
"Coach (Porter Moser) has been talking about how 'You think this is good? Look around. You think this is good? Well, it's gonna get even better,'" guard Ben Richardson said. "It's just kind of been bought into that, like put it in the bag and move on."
DALLAS (AP) — Porter Moser wants his Loyola-Chicago players to savor every moment of the NCAA Tournament. It took the Ramblers a long time, and last-moment shots in consecutive games, to go from what the coach termed a "grassroots rebuild" to the Sweet 16.
"It's amazing when you have a group of people who believe," Moser said. "I mean, just this group is resilient. They believe."
CHICAGO (AP) — As the players walked into the video room at the end of a grueling boot camp last fall, Loyola of Chicago coach Porter Moser made sure "One Shining Moment" was playing.
He wanted his team to hear that anthem of the NCAA, to see what the payoff could be for their sweat, their aches, their pains. And he wanted his players to believe the idea of a tournament run was anything but madness.
CHICAGO (AP) — Loyola of Chicago coach Porter Moser recalled dinners with Rick Majerus.
Whether they went to a fancy restaurant or a greasy spoon, it was always a local joint and never some middle-of-the-road national chain. There was no such thing as a quick bite, either, even if his boss insisted they were going for just that.
"He liked a big group. He liked to talk ball. He liked to talk movies, politics. But it was an event," Moser said. "It was a three-hour event."
