Michigan’s Jordan Poole went out of his way to find Sister Jean after Michigan’s win over Loyola-Chicago on Saturday night in the 2018 Final Four. Poole wanted to let the biggest star of the 2018 NCAA Tournament that he was a big fan.
Cameras caught the Michigan freshman complimenting Sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt, Loyola-Chicago’s 98-year-old team chaplain, on a great season.

“I’m a big fan of you guys, you did a great job,” Poole said. Sister Jean thanked Poole for his well wishes.
Just as Jalen Rose’s 100-year-old grandmother predicted earlier in the week, Sister Jean and Loyola-Chicago’s Cinderella story ended in San Antonio against the Wolverines.
Poole had a relatively quiet game against the Ramblers, scoring 7 points on 2-of-5 shooting in 12 minutes. But he also gained a lot of fame in the NCAA Tournament for what he did in the second round against Houston.
