SAN ANTONIO – I have no direct line with God, but I'm pretty sure He or she wants to have a word with Sister Jean. [19659008] As in "Sister Jean, please do not put me in." Of course, Sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt is the 98-year-old nun and team captain of the Loyola Chicago basketball team, not to mention this year's good mood history of the NCAA tournament.

On Friday they held a press conference for her, and she usually showed her signature grace.

She also fired a figurative air ball.

EXPERT PICKS: Predictions for all Final Four games

A reporter asked her if she thought God was a basketball fan.

"He probably is," replied Sister Jean. "And he's probably more a NCAA basketball fan than the NBA, so I'll bet your crowd is big this time, and if you compare it to the NBA, it'll be different, and I say that because play young people with their hearts and not for financial help. "

As God might tell you, the previous TV ratings do not support the prediction of Sister Jean.

The NBA Finals in 2017 averaged 20.4 million viewers, as measured by Nielsen data.

According to an NCAA press release, the 2017 Final Four seed games had an average of 16.8 million viewers.

But no matter everyone feels about these reviews, the merit of NBA basketball against NCAA basketball and how the ratings will look this year, for example, I pray that God does not care at all.
