Last night, the Irish men’s basketball team began their journey in the first of two exhibition games before their regular season slate begins. Last night, the Irish defeated UIndy 95-69 at Purcell Pavilion.
Other than that game, the only other Irish athletic team in action was the men’s golf squad who is competing in the Invitational at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. You can check in on how the Irish did yesterday here.
Lastly, this tweet by the Notre Dame Baseball account (@NDBaseball) clearly shows the athleticism of their current and former student-athletes, additionally it is pretty awesome to think about the three of them.

Welcome new Notre Dame football assistant media relations Leigh Torbin, a diehard Red Sox fan…
Biggest upset, #RedSox taking two of three in St. Louis? Not even close. Biggest upset tonight is a Sox WS game taking under three hours.
