ESPN's Sarah Spain Was Not Happy With This NCAA Tournament Joke

Sarah Spain films a segment for ESPN.

The best moment of the 2018 NCAA Tournament - so far, anyway - came on Thursday afternoon, when No. 11 Loyola-Chicago upset No. 6 seed Miami.

The win came on a near buzzer-beater. It sent Loyola into the Round of 32, where it'll face Tennessee.

A Loyola-Chicago fan has gone viral during the NCAA Tournament run. It's a 98-year-old nun.

Meet Sister Jean, Loyola-Chicago's biggest (and oldest) fan. She did an interview with Turner Sports right after the game.

Loyola-Chicago moves on to face No. 3 Tennessee in the second round. A former Vols' football player took to Twitter shortly after Loyola's win for some (seemingly harmless) trash talk. This did not sit well with ESPN's Sarah Spain.

The two then went at it for a bit on Twitter, not coming to an agreement.

OK then. Tennessee and Loyola-Chicago are set to play on Saturday night. Tipoff is set for 6:10 p.m. E.T. on TNT. Sister Jean has a message for the Vols, too. "Watch out."
