n a sunny day between opening-round games of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament in Dallas, Loyola’s 98-year-old team chaplain, Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, planned to go for a simple lunch down the street.“We couldn’t do it — everybody knows her,” said Tom Hitcho, the university’s longtime Adidas NMD Femme senior associate athletic director for operations, who has been pushing Sister Jean’s wheelchair during the tournament.They Adidas ZX Flux Womens were stopped so frequently by adoring fans on the sidewalk, it was nearly impossible to make it more than a few steps before another Nike Air VaporMax Mujer one approached. They opted to return to the hotel for lunch.Even at the hotel, people in town for a convention — not for basketball — knew Nike Dunk Sky High Womens Sister Jean. She’s in so many selfies, she now prepares to pose.Ah, the life of a national celebrity.Actually, let Sister Jean correct that.“International celebrity,” she quipped to a TV news reporter Sunday. She mentioned being the subject of news Nike Air Force 1 Femme segments in Mexico and Britain.Darren Rovell, ESPN’s sports business reporter, said Sister Jean has been tweeted about more than any other person connected with any team during the NCAA tournament. Nike Air Max 2017 Womens (Sorry, Donte Ingram and Clayton Custer, the Loyola players who hit game-winning shots in the first and second rounds.)

NBC’s “Access” interviewed the California native Monday and called her the “biggest star of the tournament.”In an interview via Skype Nike Internationalist Femme with the entertainment program, she deflected praise and lauded the team: “I think the stardom rests with the coach and with the team. Nike Air Max 270 Mujer I’m sort of in the background doing the hard pushing. They’re the ones that do the playing and get the credit.”Loyola tweeted Monday night that Sister Jean was to be on Good Morning America at 7:40 a.m. Tuesday and she plans to travel again with the 11th-seeded Ramblers to the Sweet 16 in Atlanta, where they will face No. 7 seed Nevada on Thursday night in a South Region semifinal.“We picked up so many fans,” she told reporters Sunday at Gentile Arena. “I think they were happy for us.”Loyola’s popularity during this tournament isn’t due only to dramatic shots and impressive upsets. Sister Jean, the team chaplain since 1994, has had a TV camera trained on her during games and has been mic’d up Nike Roshe Run Mujer for her pregame prayers.Most seasons, hoops fans can take joy in busted brackets.The defending champion Tar Heels’ loss coupled with Nike Air Force 1 Mujer Virginia’s meltdown was jarring for the ACC.

She grew up in San Francisco and joined the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary convent in Iowa after high school. She returned to California, where she taught school and coached basketball for 20 years, before taking a teaching job in 1961 at Mundelein College.Not long after the all-Nike Air Max 90 Womens women’s school merged with Loyola in 1991, Sister Jean retired from the education department. She was Adidas ZX 750 Femme asked to replace Nike Air Presto Womens the retiring chaplain of the men’s basketball team and has held the post for 24 years.Loyola has been cognizant of Sister Jean’s Adidas ZX 750 Womens health on the trips.After missing nine games this season — a rarity during her tenure — because of a broken hip, she returned late Nike Roshe Run Mujer in the season to watch home games in the tunnel from her wheelchair.“I think everybody is a celebrity in his and her own way,” she told “Access.” “No matter what we do, if we’re doing what we’re supposed to be doing, then each one of us is a celebrity, each one is bright in the eyes of God.”
