After Loyola-Chicago’s win over Kansas State, the win that sent the Ramblers into the Final Four, TBS announcer Charles Barkley invited Loyola’s Sister Jean to come hang out in the studio.

“We’ll have limitations,” she said. “I like him when he talks as a sports announcer very much, but I don’t want to see him play on a basketball court.”

Ever the jokester, Barkley took it in stride and seemed to enjoy the banter.

Let’s get these two on camera together, and let them be interviewed by Mariah Musselman.
