Watch Loyola's Players Give Sister Jean A Piece Of The Net After Reaching The Final Four

Sister Jean sits courtside.

The Loyola Chicago Ramblers are off to the Final Four and Sister Jean is along for the ride.

Loyola Chicago downed Kansas State on Saturday night, 78-62, earning a trip to the Final Four in the process. After the game, as is customary, the Ramblers took turns climbing the ladder to cut down their piece of the net.

It wasn't just players and coaches getting their share, either. Sister Jean, of course, got a piece of the nylon too.

Sister Jean has an incredible smile on her face after she's given her piece. The 98-year-old, who is the Team Chaplain, looks overcome with joy as she twiddles it in her hands.

Here's a short clip of her celebrating.

Here's a longer video, showing some of the players cutting down the net too.

Loyola Chicago next gets the winner of Florida State vs. Michigan in the Final Four. It remains to be seen whether this will be the final net the Ramblers cut down this year.
