Get Your Hoops Fix

Oct 18, 2012, 11:37 AM EDT

We just hit the halfway point of football season, so it’s hard to imagine, but basketball season is right around the corner. Last Thursday, the Notre Dame basketball teams held their annual media day at the Purcell Pavilion.
Women’s head coach Muffet McGraw kicked off the day with a press conference in the auditorium, before her student-athletes spoke with the media on the court.

Fighting Irish Digital Media caught up with upperclassmen leaders Skylar Diggins, Kayla McBride and Natalie Achonwa.

Afterwards, men’s head coach Mike Brey talked about his expectations for the upcoming season.

The afternoon wrapped up with player interviews, as FIDM spoke with Scott Martin, Eric Atkins, Jerian Grant, Jack Cooley, Pat Connaughton and Garrick Sherman.

The men’s team will begin the 2012-13 campaign with an exhibition game against Quincy (Oct. 29, 7:00 pm ET), while the women will host Edinboro (Nov. 1, 7:00 pm ET) in their only exhibition contest of the season.
