Former Notre Dame All-American Jerian Grant led the Chicago Bulls to the NBA Summer League Championship last night scoring 24 points while grabbing 10 rebounds in their 84 - 82 OT win over Minnesota -- earning the MVP award!
A decent end to a NBA Summer League session in Las Vegas for Notre Dame's Pat Connaughton '15.
Pat hit a game winning three-pointer (IN DOUBLE OT / SUDDEN DEATH -- first basket won the game) on Tuesday night and then followed that up with a 23 point performance last night against the Boston Celtics to end up the Trailblazers 5 game NBA Summer League season in Las Vegas.
Yes, there's a bass fishing tournament for college teams (FLW Collegiate Bass Fishing Tournament) and Notre Dame had a team compete!
The team, made up of Notre Dame student-athletes Josh Anderson (football) and Bo Brauer (hockey) finished 17th out of 85 teams in the competition. The tournament was held in Wisconsin on the Mississippi River -- see LA TIMES story below.
They caught the limit of five Bass -- that weighed 10.6 lbs. -- the winning team caught five fish that weighed a total of 14 lbs.
Have to thank ND GO IRISH regular Tommy Naccarato for alerting me to this story!
