Sister Jean, Loyola-Chicago's Chaplain, Gets Her Own Bobblehead

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. The breakout star of this year's NCAA tournament is not a player. It's a 98-year-old nun named Sister Jean. She's chaplain for the Loyola Chicago men's basketball team. She leads them in prayer before every game. The team is in the Final Four, and Sister Jean is now an icon. You can buy a Sister Jean bobblehead, and lots of people are. The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum says Sister Jean's is the best-selling bobblehead in their history. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
