Notre Dame’s men’s basketball team played one of the best games we’ve seen from a squad in the NCAA Tournament Saturday night. The Fighting Irish’s valiant effort ultimately wasn’t enough, though, as they fell to undefeated Kentucky, 68-66. Still, Mike Brey’s team has plenty to be proud about this season; an ACC Tournament championship and an Elite Eight run highlight an awesome year. Following the loss to the Wildcats, Notre Dame’s fans welcomed their team home with roaring applause. Much-deserved welcome home for one of the best @FightingIrish teams you’ll ever see. Thanks, @NDmbb. pic.twitter.com/ET6mvODLlJ— Josh Flynt (@jflyntnd518) March 29, 2015That’s a great scene. Notre Dame’s run to the Elite Eight was the sixth in program history and the first since 1979.
