Pro Game #2 for Connaughton -- Better Result!

Former Notre Dame basketball / baseball star Pat Connaughton '15, played his second professional hoops game Sunday night in Las Vegas in the NBA Summer League.

Pat had a better night -- scoring 11 points on 4 for 10 shooting -- including 2 for 5 from behind the three-point arch.  He also grabbed six rebounds (second most on the team). 

If you click on the link below you'll see a beautiful drive down the lane by Connaughton leading to a three-point play.

Found this interesting -- in game #1 Pat was listed as a Guard -- in game #2, Pat was listed as a FORWARD.
