You know that when Sister Jean brings her Loyola University of Chicago Men’s Basketball team to the NCAA March Madness tournament, they are ready to play. The University of Illinois Fighting Illini simply was not as ready. It was clear Illinois is the more talented team but the Ramblers are a much more feisty team. Going into the game, the consensus was that if both teams were at their best, Illinois would win.
It was also clear that if Illinois wasn’t ready and Loyola was, the Ramblers would have a chance. Well, they had more than a chance as they flat out beat them. The final score was 71-58 which is a pretty crazy margin for an eight seed defeating a one seed. Loyola deserves so much credit for the way they played and they deserve every ounce of credit.
