Loyola Chicago Chaplain Sister Jean Takes Picture with Butler Mascot BlueMarch 19, 2021
There may not be packed arenas at the NCAA tournament in Indiana, but there's no shortage of VIPs in the crowd this year.
On Friday, two of college basketball's biggest fans finally got a chance to meet and made an attempt to break the internet. Loyola University Chicago's Sister Jean and Butler Blue IV got to hang out at Hinkle Fieldhouse ahead of the No. 8 Ramblers' opening game against No. 9 Georgia Tech.
At 101 years old—and fully vaccinated—Sister Jean Schmidt was cleared to travel with Loyola and continue her duties as team chaplain three days before the tournament tipped off.
After making the trip to Indianapolis, she had another famous college basketball star waiting for her. Hopefully, this is just the start of a beautiful friendship.
