We have a Jesuit pope. Is this the year for a Jesuit NCAA basketball champion? It hasn’t happened since 1977, when Al McGuire’s Marquette team took the title. But this year’s tournament has the strongest lineup of Jesuit schools in years. It includes a #1 seed (Gonzaga), a #2 (Georgetown), and a #3 (Marquette). The other Jesuit teams are St. Louis (4 seed) and Creighton (7).
