"I'm watching it, and this team has no quit in them", said guard Lucas Williamson, who watched Cincinnati's comeback on Sunday.

Rarely has she missed a home game until this season, when a hip injury disrupted her attendance. Eric Musselman and his insane coaching style against Porter Moser. They also have three players each averaging 17 ppg or more. Look for Michigan State to make things extremely hard on Bucknell, leading to a score that goes under the total. A 16 seed upset a 1 seed for the first time in tournament history thanks to UMBC blowing out Virginia on Friday.

Donte Ingram made a 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds left to lead Loyola to a 64-62 win over Miami on March 15 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Dallas, Texas, sending the Hurricanes home.

NBC's "Access" interviewed the California native on Monday and called her the "biggest star of the tournament". Her name became a popular topic on Twitter, to the point that even former President Barack Obama gave her a shoutout. Coming into the season, the Hurricanes were considered to have one of the best backcourts in the country with Walker, Newton and sophomore guard Bruce Brown Jr. During a brief stretch on Friday afternoon, she did three interviews in succession: one with a television crew, a one-on-one with ESPN.com then a phone interview with the Washington Post. Sister Jean definitely fits the bill on this occasion.

"It's fantastic when you have a group of people who believe", Moser said. "That's fine with me". It took the Ramblers a long time, and last-moment shots in consecutive games, to go from what he termed a "grass-roots rebuild" to the Sweet 16.

"We couldn't do it - everybody knows her", said Tom Hitcho, the university's longtime senior associate athletic director for operations, who has been pushing Sister Jean's wheelchair during the tournament. "She prayed, but then she starts saying, 'You've got to box out and watch out for 23'". Sister Jean is as active and as sharp as they come.

"The media scrutiny, the spotlight, it's great for them", Moser said. "Oh, thank God, thank God we did it, because we knew we would do it", replied Sr.

Her passion for the school is unrivaled. "Any one of us could have hit that shot, but I was just fortunate enough to be in the position".

The NCAA Tournament has always been about more than just basketball. She's for the whole university.

"International celebrity", she quipped to a TV news reporter Sunday. I pray for the other team - perhaps not as hard.

Loyola-Chicago was able to yet again decide the outcome of the game in the final seconds of the second round against Tennessee as Clayton Custer, a redshirt Junior, hit a go-ahead jumper from the right elbow with 3.6 seconds remaining.

"I think that's what you see happening there".

The Ramblers, competing in their first NCAA tournament for the first time since 1985, huddle up with Sister Jean before every game and she says a prayer for her squad.

Two last-second shots - two prayers answered - vaulted the Ramblers to the Sweet 16 and placed them right in the national spotlight.

UMBC's Cinderella Run Ends With Loss To Kansas State
This is like Penn State Abington or UNC Greensboro making a tournament run. "So it makes things tough on the opposing team". Honestly, the sweet sixteen looks like it was picked completely at random. "I've never been around something like this".


"I think the sport and us actually winning has really brought the school together, because not a lot of students have realized how good they are, and that's kind of a shame", Camila Flores said. The Ramblers will choose to believe Schmidt had something to do with it going in.
