They returned to a hero’s welcome today.

The Loyola University Chicago men’s basketball team arrived back on their North Side campus around 2:15 p.m. Sunday for a rally in the Gentile Arena.

Sister Jean, the 98-year-old nun and team chaplain, was also greeted warmly at the rally.

The team was in Atlanta Saturday where they secured a trip to the Final Four with a win over Kansas State.

The team will take on Michigan at the Alamodome next Saturday.

It will be Loyola’s first time playing in the Final Four in 55 years.
