FRIDAY’S T.I.F.I. – Talkin’ @NDmbb Senior Night, @NDwbb Domination, @NDFootball Spring Practice, #NDinNHL & More!
Feb 28, 2014, 10:41 AM EDT
A huge weekend has already begun for Irish athletics after a big win for the women’s basketball team last night over another top-15 team in North Carolina.
As the weekend continues, almost every Irish squad is in action. A culmination of the last four years for the men’s basketball team will be displayed on Saturday as they honor their student-athletes who have no eligibility remaining. Be sure to either get your tickets at UND.com/Tickets or tune in at 2 p.m. (ET) as the Irish welcome former BIG EAST foe, Pitt, to Purcell Pavilion. There is a variety of Irish events this weekend, to see the full schedule, head over to UND.com.
