Tom Brady shows his support for MI in Final Four

Loyola Ramblers like 'The Little Engine that Could' in NCAA Final Four

Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt became a national celebrity as the team chaplain for the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers during their Cinderella run to the Final Four in the 2018 NCAA men's basketball tournament, but she is taking a step out of the spotlight after Saturday's loss.

Those were the words of Loyola Chicago's head coach Porter Moser after his team relinquished a double digit lead and bowed to the University of MI in the 2018 NCAA Final Four, 69-57. Wagner had all facets of his offense game working Saturday while scoring 24 points on 10 of 16 shooting with 15 rebounds.

In many ways, Monday night's NCAA National Championship Game between Villanova and MI is a dream match-up.

Loyola-Chicago is only the fourth No. 11 seed to reach the national semifinals. However, in the second half, MI fought all the way back.

MI guard Zavier Simpson (3) guards against Loyola Chicago guard Clayton Custer (13) during the. And there will be no Hollywood ending for Loyola-Chicago.

As for the impact this team had on basketball at Loyola, Moser said: "They have so much to be proud of".

"I can not believe anyone would insinuate she gave up on these kids", Behrns said.

Custer scored seven straight points for Loyola at one point to put the Ramblers up 41-31 with 14:08 remaining.

Backup point guard Jaaron Simmons made a 3, and Duncan Robinson hit another a few minutes later to cut the Wolverines' deficit to 45-42 with 10 minutes left.

For a while, however, the Wolverines, a No. 3 seed, appeared to be in trouble. And we're not going to get rattled.

Moritz Wagner scored a game-high 24 points and had 15 points for MI.

"I've never gone to a school with a super great sports team before, so it's like the first time experiencing school spirit for me; it's pretty cool", student Yohance Richards said. Tip-off between the Michigan Wolverines and Villanova Wildcats is set for 9:20 p.m. ET on TBS.
