Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that this past weekend, the Notre Dame Hoopyballers opened March Madness by spotting Michigan a 13-point lead before storming back for a win. The Irish then followed up that performance by purging the ghost of 2012 Xavier (who prevented the Irish from a matchup with #15 Lehigh instead of #2 Duke) with a heart-stopping win over Stephen F. Austin. I mean, my heart is still pounding from that one.
The choice for this week's photo was a tough one. On one hand, there were plenty of phenomenal celebration photos from ND's big win over SFA, especially the guys on the bench going nuts. On the other hand, however...LOLOLOLOL MICHIGAN. Factor in the NCAA Hockey Tournament game we're playing against Michigan this Friday, and I think you know why I chose that header photo for this week. ;)
Say what you will about Mike Brey and his team (and trust me, many of you already have), but the fact is they're dancing into the Sweet Sixteen while several hundred other teams are watching ND play Wisconsin from their dorm couches. As you offer your wittiest captions and photoshops for the entry photo of Zach Auguste getting mugged from behind by UM's Mark Donnal, get pumped for the huge slate of Triduum games that feature our basketball and hockey teams!
