Thursday's biggest winner was a 98-year-old nun

There's a ton to get to from Day 1 of the NCAA Tournament, but let's start with the day's MVP: 98-year-old Jean Dolores-Schmidt. She is chaplain of No. 11-seed Loyola-Chicago, which pulled off one of the day's biggest upsets with a buzzer-beater over Miami, and became a viral star. God bless her.
