Here is a snippet:

Gonzaga is the only Jesuit university named after St. Gonzaga, but far from the only Jesuit school to experience success in college hoops. Five Jesuit schools have won the NCAA tournament — Holy Cross, Georgetown, Marquette, San Francisco and Loyola-Chicago — while others like Creighton, Xavier, St. Joseph’s and Loyola Marymount have made their mark.
