A glorious run by the men’s lacrosse team came to an end on Monday at the hands of the Duke Blue Devils in the NCAA Championship game. The Irish had been on a roll of late, winning the ACC Championship and coming out victorious in their first three games in NCAA play. Take a second to watch the highlights from Monday’s NCAA Championship Game.
Now what did we miss …
1. Connaughton Gears Up For Draft (NBCSports.com)
A three-year starter on the men’s basketball team, Pat Connaughton is also the “ace” of the Irish baseball squad. With the MLB Draft looming, Connaughton, a draft-eligible junior, is weighing all of his options for the 2014-15 season. Click the link above to read more.
2. Rowing In The Circle City (NCAA.com)
After Notre Dame’s first season in the ACC, the Irish rowing team picked up its third straight NCAA Championship bid. The Championship, hosted by Notre Dame, is being held in Indianapolis. Click the link above to read more.
3. Samardzija Is Elite And No One Cares (CraveOnline.com)
Jeff Samardzija’s 1-4 record for the Chicago Cubs this year is not just misleading, it’s downright misleading. Samardzija’s eight (of 11) starts of 7.0 innings or more, coupled with his miniscule 1.68 ERA make him one of the top starters in the entire league a third of the way through the MLB season.
