Loyola’s loss proved no one is safe from the Crying Jordan meme

Loyola-Chicago’s magical NCAA tournament run came to and end Saturday evening in Chicago, as Moe Wagner and Michigan overturned a 10-point deficit to win going away, 69-57. In doing so, Michigan became the first team to reach the national championship game without facing a top-5 seed.

Loyola won the hearts of fans nationwide, and the team’s 98-year-old chaplain Sister Jean became an internet phenomenon over the course of March Madness. Sister Jean was a frequent target of TV cameras Saturday, but she left the court late in the second half after Michigan had taken the lead (though she returned to greet players after the game ended.)

Because Twitter is Twitter, even Sister Jean’s heartbreak was reduced to a Crying Jordan meme.
