During the first week of the 2018 NCAA Tournament, no person associated with the tourney made a bigger impact than Sister Jean on Twitter.
ESPN’s Darren Rovell shared this information on Monday afternoon, two days after the Chicago-Loyola Ramblers beat Tennessee to advance into the Sweet 16.

People cannot stop tweeting about this 98-year-old team chaplain who is still as sharp as a pin and loves her team to no end. Sister Jean even got a Twitter shout-out from none other than former president Barack Obama over the weekend.
She’s immensely popular, and quips like this one here only serve to add to her appeal.
Loyola will face another red-hot team in the Sweet 16, as the Ramblers have a date with Nevada. The Wolf Pack have come back in both of their NCAA Tournament games thus far, and their comeback against Cincinnati Sunday was one for the record books.
We cannot wait to see what happens next. March Madness has been nothing short of brilliant this year, and we’d love nothing more than to see Sister Jean and the Ramblers advance even further as this year’s top Cinderella story.
