Sister Jean and the Loyola Ramblers have again captivated the attention of the country — and one of Chicago’s favorite native sons — at the men’s NCAA Tournament.

To be clear: This is no Cinderella run for Porter Moser’s squad, who dismantled No. 1 seed Illinois on Sunday and showed they have the tools to win the whole thing.

And now former Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade — who hails from nearby Robbins, Illinois — wants to get in on the fun.
