Sister Jean Will Be Given 'Extended Break' After Loyola's Cinderella Run Ends

And there will be no Hollywood ending for Loyola-Chicago.

MI stormed out of the "under-eight" media timeout, went back in front of the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers, courtesy of a 17-2 run over a six-and-a-half minute stretch and never relinquished the lead on the way to a 69-57 win in the national semifinals at The Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, Saturday.

And Monday night at the Alamodome, Michigan will play for a national championship.

Brady, who is always pulling for the Wolverines, also shared a FaceTime moment with MI coach John Beilein during a Westwood One interview with Brady's close friend Jim Gray.

Loyola tasted success it hadn't enjoyed in 55 years, slaying giants as a No. 11 seed all the way to the national semifinals with a 69-57 loss to No. 3 seed MI.

The crux of Villanova's attack was a historic three-point barage. They hit some shots. 3-Point Goals-Loyola of Chicago 1-10 (Custer 1-3, Williamson 0-1, Richardson 0-1, Skokna 0-1, Ingram 0-2, Townes 0-2), MI 7-28 (Wagner 3-7, Robinson 2-6, Matthews 1-2, Simmons 1-2, Simpson 0-3, Poole 0-3, Abdur-Rahkman 0-5).

Same kind of injury, but mine was 100 times worse, but the same kind of injury. "He is not coming back", Ginobili said. "You just try to stay positive".

The second half from the Wolverines was in stark contrast to the first-half effort.

"That was just one of those nights, man", Villanova head coach Jay Wright said. Matthews scored on a backdoor cut to make it 51-47 with 5:48 remaining, and the Wolverines were back in business. I feel bad for Kansas. They run some great action. We just made every shot.

Wagner, playing in front of his parents who made the trip from Germany, had 24 points, d 15 rebounds and was 10 for 16 from the field. The Wolverines' starting guards, Zavier Simpson and Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman, were a combined 2 of 17 from the field.

Loyola-Chicago's dream and also spiritual season ended in San Antonio after losing Saturday to MI in the Final Four, 69-57. Ten of those came in the second half, which aided a 21-6 Wolverine run that ended with a Mathews fastbreak dunk. And our offense was a lot more organized.

When Wagner hit a 3-pointer (he had three of them) with 2 minutes, 59 seconds left, it put MI up by 8, and a clearly exhausted Loyola seemed done for.

After allowing MI to score the first 11 second-chance points and grab eight first-half offensive rebounds compared to Loyola's two, the Ramblers still went into halftime up 29-22.

Bach told reporters after landing in Beijing that his talks with Kim on Friday had been "very open and fruitful". Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has said he is exploring the possibility of a meeting with Kim as well.

MI forward Moe Wagner was the best player in Wolverines' Final Four matchup with Loyola-Chicago.

The Final Four is underway with MI winning the opening tip in the first semifinal game against Loyola-Chicago.

That also meant it was time for the country to say goodbye to America's new sweetheart, Sister Jean, the 98-year-old Loyola-Chicago team chaplain.

In 1964, MI won a second-round NCAA Tournament game 84-80 over Loyola, then the defending national champions. For a few shining minutes, it looked like the No. 11-seed Ramblers might become the lowest-seeded team ever to reach the national championship game. And they didn't want to end it.

"I'm blessed, so blessed that Loyola University, the administrators, the fan base, they were steadfast on how I was saying I was going to do it with good kids, good people". They changed the perception of a program. "We had some smiles but it still is stinging", said head coach Porter Moser. The Wolverines, unranked to start the season and sitting at 19-7 in early February, will now resume the underdog role they have played much of the season, trying to win their second NCAA championship.
