Aside from the Irish accepting a bowl bid to play in the Pinstripe Bowl in New York City, the men’s soccer team captured their first College Cup semifinal berth, Matt Besler (Irish soccer alum) won the MLS Cup with Sporting KC in penalty kicks over Real Salt Lake and Max Scodro (Irish golf alum) finished in tie for 15th in the final PGA-LA event of the season.

Let’s talk men’s soccer…
Matt Besler has had a pretty good year. Name the two trophies and two MLS honors he has garnered this season.
You will find the answer to today’s trivia question in Tuesday’s T.I.F.I.
Yesterday’s question, After Garrick Sherman’s 29-point effort last night I started thinking about this … who was the last Irish men’s basketball player to score 30 points in a game (kind of a trick question), was answered correctly by a few people. The answer was February 28, 2011 and Tim Abromaitis and Ben Hansbrough both tallied 30 points.
