What Happened To Notre Dame Basketball?

Hail Mary . . .

The Fighting Irish are far, far removed from a preseason #9 ranking and after a loss tonight at home to a Villanova team that was just beaten on their own home court by the faltering Georgetown Hoyas (who entered that game at 5-10 in Big East play), head coach Mike Brey needs to change his last name to pray and start doing a lot of it if ‘ol Harangody and friends think they can get into the NCAA tourney.

What are they praying for?

To win the Big East tournament.  It’s the only way they can get into the big dance.  Sad, but true.   A team that had such high expectations fell flat on their hunchbacks.   Their only win over a team that is currently ranked was against Louisville, and granted it was a 33 point beat down, however based on the entire body of work for this season, that was a FLUKE.  And it all started with a loss to lowly St. John’s.  Guess where?  Madison Square Garden. 

Notre Dame has one more regular season game at home against the very same Red Storm of St. John’s who began the Couldn’t Fight Their Way Out of a Wet Paper Bag Irish’s nightmare of a season.   Mike Brey’s squad should want revenge and then has to take their plight back to the scene of the crime, when the Big East tourney begins in New York City’s Madison Square Garden on March 10th. 

They gotta have faith . . .

Especially if they want to see former Notre Dame coach now ESPN Analyst Digger Phelps dance like this again:
