The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame went toe-to-toe with Kentucky -- leading most of the game -- only to lose the lead and game with SIX SECONDS left -- 68 - 66.
I know I speak for the entire NOTRE DAME NATION when I say THANK YOU!
Thank you to Jerian Grant, thank you to Pat Connaughton, thank you to Mike Brey, thank you to the Players, thank you to the Coaches -- how fun were these last few weeks!
I thought we had them -- we couldn't afford to not be perfect at the free throw line over the last few minutes. The three misses -- the difference on the scoreboard.
Kentucky did not miss a shot the last 12 minutes of the game -- and they still had to make two free throws to beat us with six seconds left. THINK ABOUT THAT -- especially when you hear Calipari talk about how poorly they played...
Hey -- we gave them all we had. I'm proud of our team.
Thank you Notre Dame Men's Basketball -- it was special!
