Here's What Sister Jean Told The Loyola Players Before Tonight's Game

Sister Jean sits courtside.

Sister Jean has stolen the show during the NCAA Tournament and at the Final Four in particular.

The Loyola Chicago team chaplain has been a camera magnet. Her media availability in San Antonio was packed.

Not bad for a 98-year-old nun.

If you were wondering what Sister Jean told the Loyola team before tonight's game, wonder no more. CBS' Tracy Wolfson has obtained a copy of her pregame speech and prayer.

"Good and gracious God at our last game we faced the band of Wolves; this game we face the Wolverines," the prayer begins.

You can read it below.

We'll have to wait and see if Sister Jean's words of encouragement paid off.

Michigan and Loyola are in a tight game in the first half. Check it out on TBS.
