Not even Sister Jean is immune to the Crying Jordan treatment, it seems.

Loyola Chicago's Cinderella run ended on Saturday night, as Michigan rallied in the game's final 10 minutes to book its ticket to the national championship contest. The loss means that we've probably seen the last of Sister Jean - at least when it comes to NCAA Tournament coverage.

Sister Jean is going out in style, however. Upon Loyola Chicago's loss, hundreds of Twitter users gave her the Crying Jordan treatment. Some are pretty good - some, well, aren't.

If you're unaware, the Crying Jordan treatment stems from this photo of Michael Jordan crying at his Basketball Hall of Fame induction back in 2009. Any athlete or coach who loses a big contest typically winds up in this situation.

Props to Sister Jean for handling her newfound fame with grace. Hopefully, she never, ever gets a Twitter account.
