University of Notre Dame

hen Father Edward F. Sorin started his school in the northern Indiana wilderness, he had only $300, three log buildings badly in need of repair and a far-sighted vision of establishing a liberal arts school to meet the growing educational needs of the frontier. He dreamed of building a great university, and in 1842, he founded the University of Notre Dame du Lac. Over the years, the University of Notre Dame du Lac would evolve into a preeminent place for Catholic thought. While becoming one of the top undergraduate institutions in the country, Notre Dame has also been at the cutting edge of research, including such innovations as the transmission of wireless messages and the development of synthetic rubber. Today researchers are achieving breakthroughs in astrophysics, radiation chemistry, environmental sciences, tropical disease transmission, cancer, robotics, and nanoelectronics. The University has also stressed residential life, with four-of-five students living on campus in the school’s 29 residence halls that serve as the focal point of social, spiritual and athletic activities. Notre Dame is one of a handful of universities with a truly international student body, coming from over 100 nations and all 50 states. Students come to Notre Dame not only to learn how to think, but to learn how to live, keeping faith with the vision of Fr. Sorin. Notre Dame is one of the few universities to regularly rank in the top 25 in the U.S. News & World Report survey of America’s best colleges and the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics

University Leadership

Jack Swarbrick Vice President • Director of Athletics John B. “Jack” Swarbrick Jr., a University of Notre Dame graduate who rose to national prominence as a lawyer, consultant and executive in the collegiate and Olympic sports industries, is in his fourth year as vice president and director of athletics at his alma mater. Among Swarbrick’s athletics initiatives are meeting the performance needs of Notre Dame student-athletes through establishment of a new sports performance division, reaching out to more former Irish student-athletes via the Notre Dame Monogram Club and other programs, utilizing emerging digital technologies to deliver better information on and access to Notre Dame athletic programs via expanded production and distribution of programming, and restructuring Notre Dame’s approach to sport administration through assignment of a unique administrator to each of the 26 Irish sports. Notre Dame ranked number one in the country (among Football Bowl Subdivision schools) in the three most recent Graduation Success Rate (GSR) surveys – in 2010 and 2009 with 99 scores (including in ‘09 a 97 score and ’10 a 96 in football that both also ranked number one). The 2009 Academic Progress Rate (APR) statistics included more perfect 1,000 scores by Irish teams (nine) than by any other FBS institution. The 2010 Notre Dame APR report featured eight perfect 1,000 scores. The past three years combined in Notre Dame athletics have featured 94 All-Americans, 19 Academic All-America selections and five NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship winners; record involvement in community service hours by Irish studentathletes; NCAA titles in 2011 in men’s and women’s fencing (a combined championship) and in 2010 in women’s soccer (with Randy Waldrum named coach of the year); NCAA runnerup team finishes in 2011 women’s basketball, 2010 men’s lacrosse, 2009 fencing and 2008 women’s soccer; NCAA semifinal appearances in 2011 hockey, 2009 and 2010 women’s tennis and 2009 women’s soccer, plus a 2010 third-place fencing finish; a men’s basketball modern program record 27 victories and a number-two NCAA seed (its highest in 30 years) in 2010-11 (resulting in national coach of the year awards for Mike Brey); the hiring of new Irish head football coach Brian Kelly to start the 2010 season; construction of a new, freestanding ice hockey arena, scheduled to open for the 2011-12 season, plus

the 2009-10 dedications of new facilities for soccer and lacrosse – as well as opening of the new Purcell Pavilion within the south dome of the Joyce Center. Born in Yonkers, N.Y., and raised in Yonkers and Bloomington, Ind., Swarbrick is a 1976 magna cum laude graduate of Notre Dame with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Upon graduating from Stanford University Law School in 1980, he returned to Indiana to accept a position as an associate in the Indianapolis law firm Baker & Daniels. He made partner in 1987 and spent 28 years overall with the firm. As a member of the Indiana Sports Corporation, including the chairmanship from 1992 to 2001, Swarbrick led many of the city’s successful proposals to a wide array of athletics organizations – from the National Football League to the United States Olympic Committee to the Big Ten Conference. His leadership efforts resulted in the city earning the right to play host to the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium; becoming the home of the National Collegiate Athletic Association national headquarters in 1999; hosting the 1987 Pan American Games, 1991 World Gymnastics Championships, NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Fours and other college championship competitions and an array of national and world championships in Olympic sports. At Baker & Daniels, Swarbrick served as general counsel for numerous national governing bodies of Olympic sports, including USA Gymnastics and USRowing, and as a consultant to the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta. In his work as an advisor to the NCAA, Swarbrick coordinated the men’s College Basketball Partnership, an NCAA-led group that addresses the opportunities and challenges in the sport, and developed the business plan for the new NBA/NCAA youth basketball enterprise, iHoops. In 2000 Swarbrick received one of the NCAA’s highest honors, The Flying Wedge Award, for his work in establishing Indianapolis as the new home of the NCAA. In 2001 the State of Indiana presented him with the Sagamore of the Wabash Award. Born March 19, 1954, Swarbrick was named Notre Dame’s 12th athletics director on July 16, 2008. He and his wife, Kimberly, are the parents of four children: Kate, a 2010 graduate of St. Louis University; Connor, a 2011 graduate of Wake Forest University; Cal, a sophomore at TCU; and Christopher, a University of Notre Dame freshman. 2011-12 MEN’ S DAME BASKETBALL NOTRE

Since its founding, Notre Dame has stressed mixing academics with faith and has done so while becoming one of the top institutions of higher learning in the nation. Featuring five undergraduate colleges (Arts and Letters, Science, Architecture, Engineering and Business), the First Year of Studies, the Graduate School and the Law School, the University finds itself attracting some of the top students and faculty in the country. Students also participate in cutting edge research and diverse study abroad opportunities, enabling Notre Dame to offer one of the top academic experiences in the world. If the NCAA awarded trophies for leading the country in graduation rates among student-athletes, the University of Notre Dame would own a case full by now.

OUTLOOK With the loss of two key frontline players off of last year’s squad, Notre Dame will rely heavily on the inside presence and physical play of junior Jack Cooley in 2011-12. Cooley, who played in all 34 games a year ago, looks to become a starter this season.

2011-12 NOTRE DAME BASKETBALL


2011-12 Outlook

ALL ON BOARD IN 2011-12 Tim Abromaitis and Scott Martin return to lead youthful Irish team. TEAM OVERVIEW Notre Dame’s record-setting 27-7 campaign in 2010-11 may be a distant memory, but to those returning, the feeling of disappointment following a third-round exit still remains strong as the Irish are set to usher in the 107th season in program history. Beginning his 12th season along the sidelines, Mike Brey will rely on a heavy dose of patience early on as he adjusts his lineups and rotations. Known as a coach who gets the most out of his players, one of Brey’s hallmarks always has been player development. The loss of three starters will certainly test his patience early on as Notre Dame looks to build a nucleus and foundation that it hopes will earn the Irish a sixth consecutive 20-win campaign and third straight NCAA tournament berth. Following the graduation of Ben Hansbrough (2011 BIG EAST Coach of the Year and an NCAA second team consensus AllAmerican), Tyrone Nash (two-year starter and second-leading rebounder) and Carleton Scott (leading rebounder), the Irish will count greatly on the experience and leadership of fifth-year senior forwards Tim Abromaitis and Scott Martin. The duo, who will serve as co-captains this season, were certainly keys to Notre Dame’s success a year ago. They will be counted on to lead a youthful Irish squad that Brey expects will get better each and every week. “There is no doubt that I am going to have to remind myself to be patient,” Brey says. “Early on in the season, it is going to be about week-to-week improvement with this group and developing the playing rotations that we are going to use throughout the season. With so many experienced players a year ago, we were nearly a finished product before the season began. This year is different, and because of our youth, the players we have to work with and the potential that we have for improvement throughout the entire season will motivate me. I also am anxious to watch Tim and Scott lead this team as they are clearly our commanders both on the court and in the locker room.” Notre Dame has enjoyed tremendous success and consistency throughout the

12

past four basketball campaigns. Since the 2007-08 season, Irish teams have posted a 96-42 mark for a .696 winning percentage. The 96 wins represent the most in program history over a four-year span. In addition, Brey has guided his squads to the most BIG EAST regular-season victories (46) in school history as the Irish have posted a 46-26 (.639) record. With Abromaitis and Martin back as the only two returning starters, there will be plenty of competition for the remaining three starting positions on the floor and for playing time off the bench. In analyzing his personnel, Brey feels that this could be a season in which he receives key contributions from a number of different players in a variety of ways. “I’ve emphasized to our guys that everybody needs to be ready to play,” Brey says. “We’ve had the luxury the last two or three years of staying older and returning veteran guys. This season we have that experience in Abromaitis and Martin, but we’ve also got some guys who are young, yet eager and ready to step in. “There will be a lot of unknowns as we begin the season, but that’s pretty exciting

for me. I’m anxious to teach these guys and work with this group to see how everything comes together throughout the year and to see who emerges to help us out on a given night. I’ve never had a more open mind about our depth.” While Abromaitis and Martin are the two veterans, look for junior forward Jack Cooley and sophomore point guard Eric Atkins to have firm grasps on the two other starting positions. Atkins saw action in all 34 contests while averaging 25.4 minutes a game a year ago as a backup to Hansbrough, while Cooley also played in every game and averaged 10.3 minutes per contest. Beyond those four, the final starting spot will certainly be up for grabs as will significant playing minutes. “Ever since I have been here, we have had a pretty good rotation and pretty much knew heading into the season who the five or six were going be,” Brey says. “This year, I believe that we are going to have more bodies in the rotation and more guys who are going to emerge as contributors as the year goes on. It’s pretty exciting because all season long there is going

BIG EAST

Tim Abromaitis 6-8 • 236 • Forward Graduate • Unionville, Conn. Mike Brey will rely heavily on Abromaitis’ leadership and confidence this season as he returns for his third year as a starter and second as a team captain. He is one of the nation’s top three-point and perimeter shooters, but has diversified and expanded his game over the past two campaigns. Last season, he averaged 15.4 ppg. and grabbed a career-high 6.1 rebounds. He became the 51st player in Notre Dame history to reach the 1,000-point mark and has scored more than 1,000 points over the past two seasons. A third-team all-BIG EAST selection year ago, and preseason first-team all-BIG EAST pick to start the ’11-’12 campaign, he connected on 47.0 percent of his shots during his career and 42.2 percent from three-point range.

2010-11 SEASON IN REVIEW

PLAYER BREAKDOWN Frontcourt

Brey on Martin “We need Scott Martin to play like he did in New York City in March during the BIG EAST Tournament and have him have more nights like he did. I think he is ready to do that. His defensive rebounding and low post game will be keys for us this season. He’s a fifth-year guy so it is time for him to be a leader on this team. Scott has helped teach our younger guys ever since he has been here and that will really benefit them this season.” Jack Cooley 6-9 • 248 • Forward Junior • Glenview, Ind. Jack Cooley will look to emerge as a force on the frontline. Playing a backup role in his first two seasons, he is primed to make a big jump in his junior year. Mike Brey believes that Cooley has the potential to develop into a double-digit rebounding threat. One of the team’s most physical players, he is as strong as any Irish player around the basket. With the loss of Tyrone Nash and Carleton Scott, Notre Dame is going to need Cooley to assert himself around the boards as both a rebounder and scorer. Brey also needs the junior to

COACHES

“Ty (Nash) and Carleton (Scott) were really great at helping each other out defensively and on the backboards,” Brey says. “Covering the basket really concerns me and that will be something that we are going to be focused on in the preseason and during the first several games. As we will offensively, we’re just going to need people to step up and adjust quickly.”

PLAYERS

to be a lot of competition. I’ve told every player on our team that they are going to have a role on the team this season. We need a handful of guys to step up and deliver for us.” While scoring has never been a problem for Brey’s teams during his stint on the Irish sidelines, the Irish mentor will be concerned early on about his team’s ability to make shots. Hansbrough, Scott and Nash combined for 1,285 of the team’s 2,558 points a year ago. Abromaitis and Martin have certainly displayed their abilities to score the ball, as did Atkins in spurts during his rookie season, but beyond that, Notre Dame’s offense is somewhat untested. How his team is going to score the ball certainly is something that Brey will be focused on early in the season. “Traditionally, we always have been a team that has been good offensively,” Brey says. “Our ability to have different guys make shots has been one of our staples and made us extremely hard to guard because we have always been able to spread people out. “Obviously, we’re going to need more than just Tim (Abromaitis) and Scott (Martin) to handle the scoring and be our shooters.” With the graduation of Nash and Scott, Notre Dame lost its two top defensive anchors; they were a tag team upfront when it came to rebounding. It’s something too that will concern Brey throughout the season.

2011-12 OUTLOOK

Scott Martin enjoyed a productive final two months of the 2010-11 campaign. A co-captain this season along with teammate Tim Abromaitis, Martin will look to improve upon his 9.7 scoring average of a year ago.

INTRODUCTION

Brey on Abromaitis “Tim’s leadership and confidence is going to be big for us this season as he helps guide our younger players along. We are so proud of what he has been able to accomplish academically and athletically here at Notre Dame. Tim has been part of a lot of winning teams and he needs to show our younger guys how to win as well. I think he is one of the best players in the country, and certainly in the BIG EAST. Scott Martin 6-8 • 222 • Forward Senior • Valparaiso, Ind. Scott Martin really emerged as a key player for the Irish throughout the second half of the season a year ago. After transferring to Notre Dame in June of 2008, he sat out the 2008-09 campaign and then missed the 2009-10 season after suffering a torn ACL in October of ’09. After not playing for more than two seasons, he really found his stride toward the end ofJanuary and carried that momentum during the final two months of the season. Martin averaged 9.7 points and 4.8 rebounds and displayed a versatility in his game with his ability to score from nearly anywhere on the court. He will help the Irish out this season with his aggressive around the basket.


2011-12 Outlook BACKCOURT

Although he played in just 14 games during his rookie season, sophomore Alex Dragicevich will be a big factor for the Irish this season in terms of both his shooting and ball-handling abilities as he should see significant playing minutes throughout the upcoming campaign.

increase his playing time on the floor. One obstacle that plagued Cooley last season was his tendency to get into foul trouble early in a game. Cooley averaged 3.7 points and 3.1 rebounds a year ago, but look for those averages to jump during the upcoming season as he looks to spend longer stretches of time on the court.

Brey on Cooley “I believe that Jack can be a doubledigit guy for us on any given night this year. We’re really going to need him this season to step up his game and he knows that. I am hoping to that he can give us more minutes and I feel that he can do that based on his conditioning since the end of last year. We also need Jack to stay away from silly fouls and find a way to keep himself on the floor.” Mike Broghammer 6-9 • 265 • Forward Junior • Orono, Minn. Mike Broghammer’s playing time was limited in the second half of the year as he battled knee injuries and surgery. In two seasons, he has played in 23 contests overall and averaged 1.8 points and 1.0 rebounds. Broghammer can take up space inside with his body and gives the Irish a powerful presence inside, especially close to the basket. If he stays healthy, Broghammer will see playing time and be someone Brey and his staff can count on coming off the bench.

Brey on Broghammer “I am really excited to see where Mike is at and to evaluate how he can help this team. It was unfortunate that he was hampered by knee problems last season because I really was pleased at how far he had come since his freshman year. If he can stay healthy, Mike can really help us this season; he has a big, powerful body with a good feel for the game. He is a good screener and passer with a very efficient 15-foot jump shot.” Tom Knight 6-9 • 250 • Forward Junior • Dixfield, Maine After sitting out his freshman season in 2009-10, Tom Knight saw action in 14 games and averaged 1.4 points during his sophomore campaign. He will give the Irish added depth and toughness on the frontline and should see time off the bench. Knight is deceptive around the basket and moves well for a player with his size. He has a strong feel for the game and good shoot touch. Knight’s all-around skills could make him a very effective player in the lineup this season.

Eric Atkins 6-1 • 182 • Guard Sophomore • Columbia, Md. Eric Atkins will begin his second season with the Irish program as Notre Dame’s floor general. Atkins spent the 2010-11 campaign as Ben Hansbrough’s understudy at point guard, but make no mistake that head coach Mike Brey will turn the reigns over to him this season. Atkins, who played in all 34 games and earned six starts during his freshman season, proved to be extremely effective for the Irish coming off the bench as he averaged 5.8 points and 3.2 assists and led the BIG EAST Conference in assist-toturnover ratio. Brey will look to Atkins to play heavy minutes this season as the lone true point guard on the Irish roster. He’ll be an outside threat from the perimeter, but also will be effective driving to the basket.

Brey on Atkins “Once the season ended last year, Eric knew what the expectations were going to be and that he was going to be our point guard this season. He is ready to take over and be our floor general. Eric learned a great deal watching and playing against Ben (Hansbrough) last season and realizes what it takes for him to manage the game for us. I think that he is going to continue to become a better shooter and scorer. I am excited to watch Eric help lead this team.” Joey Brooks 6-6 • 220 • Guard Junior • Houston, Texas. One of the team’s best defenders and screeners, Joey Brooks is looking to become a big part of Notre Dame’s rotation as he begins his third year in the program. Brooks is one of the team’s most effective defensive players, a role Mike Brey will look for him to fill this season. He is as quick and as skilled as any player on the team and has great court awareness. Brooks has a good offensive game, but it will be his defensive game that will be his greatest strength during the upcoming season.

Brey on Brooks

“After suffering an ankle injury in the spring, Tom has worked extremely hard to get himself ready for this season. I am expecting him to really help us this season. For a big guy, he can score for us in a number of ways and not just done low. Tom’s got a tremendous offensive skill set, but we’re also going to need him to have a defensive presence when he is on the floor.”

“Since we lost two key guys on the front line in Tyrone Nash and Carleton Scott, Joey’s strength for us this season is going to be his ability to defend and screen. We’re really going to need and count on him to do that this season. I am not worried so much about his scoring, but we do need him to have a defensive men2011-12 MEN’ S DAME BASKETBALL NOTRE

2010-11 SEASON IN REVIEW BIG EAST RECORDS

“With the loss of Ben Hansbrough’s shooting and ball-handling skills, we’re going to need someone to fill that void and I expect that Alex is going to be one of the players that is going to do that for us this season. I’ve always loved his feel for the game and the way in which he handles the ball and passes it. It is going to be important that we have him on the floor. Jerian Grant 6-5 • 195 • Guard Sophomore • Bowie, Md. Jerian Grant did not play in his freshman season giving him a year to learn Mike Brey’s system. Grant battled a stress fracture last year, but he heads into the season at 100 percent. He and Atkins could be Notre Dame’s starting backcourt to start the season. Grant has made steady progress since coming into the program. He is an attacking player with great athleticism, speed and quickness. Grant’s versatile game allows him to shoot from the outside as well as drive to the basket. He will be counted on to handle the ball as well this season to take some of that burden off of Atkins.

COACHES

“We’re going to need Pat Connaughton right away and I believe that he is ready to step in and contribute immediately. He has an edge about him much like Luke Harangody and Tory Jackson did when they came into our program. Pat understands how to play the game and that translates well with how we do things here. He feels like he is ready and I feel like he can make big contributions for us this year.”

Brey on Dragicevich

SCHEDULE Notre Dame heads into the campaign riding a 19-game home win streak at Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. Over the last five years, the Irish have been one of the nation’s most consistent teams at home and is the only program to post three undefeated seasons at home in the last five years. Notre Dame has registered an 84-6 mark for a .933 winning percentage at home and owns the best BIG EAST regular-season home record at 39-5 (.886). Once again, the Irish will face the daunting 18-game regular-season BIG EAST slate, while a challenging non-conference slate awaits them as well. Notre Dame will have stiff tests against Detroit, Missouri and either California or Georgia in the CBE Classic during the month of November. In addition, the Irish end the month by making a trip to Spokane, Wash., to play Gonzaga. Notre Dame and the Zags faced each other a year ago in South Bend in the first-ever meeting between the two schools. The Irish face Maryland in the BB&T Classic in Washington, D.C., in early December and also take on Indiana at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind., right before the Christmas break.

2011-12 OUTLOOK

Pat Connaughton 6-5 • 206 • Guard/ Forward • Freshman • Arlington, Mass. Pat Connaughton, the lone freshman on the Irish roster, is going to see playing time immediately and will be on the court for Notre Dame for extended minutes. While most freshmen historically have not seen a great deal of playing time that certainly will not be the case for Connaughton as he will be in the lineup early and often throughout the season. He brings a toughness and edge to the Irish and knows how to play the game at both ends of the floor. His style of play fits in well with Notre Dame’s system; he can shoot and handle ball extremely well. Mike Brey expects him to be an outstanding addition this season.

No player may show more improvement and upside this season than Alex Dragicevich. He has great versatility in his game both as a shooter and in his ability to handle the basketball. Dragicevich could see time at point guard when Eric Atkins is not on the floor. He also has great size for a guard and a good feel for the game. Dragicevich’s game fits strongly into Notre Dame’s style of play because of his ability and consistency to shoot from the perimeter. Mike Brey believes that he will contribute in a number of different ways this season when he is on the court.

HISTORY

“I am looking forward to having Jerian out there on the court this season. He has improved tremendously since last year and it was good for him and our program that he had the opportunity to learn our system a year ago. Jerian is going to have a big impact for us this year because of his speed and quickness. He is a very good shooter, but also has the ability to get to the basket and score or pass it off to an open shooter on the wing.”

NOTRE DAME FIGHTING IRISH

IRISH COACHES Mike Brey was presented with the Henry Iba Award by ESPN’s Andy Katz in Houston, Texas prior to the 2011 NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four. The United States Basketball Writers Coaches Association (USBWA) honored him with the award as the national coach of the year. Brey also was named the Associated Press coach of the year and picked up his third BIG EAST coach-of-the-year honor in the last five seasons. 2011-12 NOTRE DAME BASKETBALL


Mike Brey Over the course of his 16-year head coaching career and his 11 seasons at Notre Dame, Mike Brey has quietly amassed an impressive resume that includes more than 300 career victories, 11 20-win seasons and nine NCAA tournament appearances. And along the way, he has done it with a style and grace suitable of the high expectations Notre Dame places on its coaches for its student-athletes in all areas. Since his arrival in July of 2000, he has worked steadily and diligently to build a nationally-respected basketball program. Brey’s accomplishments are striking when one considers the emphasis that is placed at Notre Dame on the term “student-athlete.” Respect has followed Brey throughout his head-coaching career, but last season’s 27-7 campaign earned him the admiration of the collegiate basketball world. Notre Dame’s 27 wins during the regular season were the most-ever in the modern era of the program. No college basketball team a year ago was talked about more on a daily basis than Notre Dame or grabbed more national headlines. The Irish finished second in the final BIG EAST regular-season standings matching a program-best 14-4 mark during the 18-game conference slate and advanced to the semifinals of the BIG EAST Championship for the second consecutive year. Notre Dame also was 8-3 versus ranked opponents with the eight wins representing the most in a single year by an Irish basketball team. Notre Dame’s surprising success earned Brey the Associated Press national coach of the year award and the Henry Iba award presented by

the United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) that annually is given by that organization as its national coach of the year. He also was named the BIG EAST Coach of the Year for the third time in five seasons (also won the award in 2007 and 2008) and with that became just one of five coaches in league history to win the award on three or more occasions. Brey joined an elite list of individuals to win the award three or more times — Jim Boeheim and Jim Calhoun have been four-time recipients, while Lou Carnesecca and John Thompson were three-time honorees. Beginning the season unranked, the Irish captured the ’10 Old Spice Classic during Thanksgiving weekend with victories over Georgia, California and Wisconsin and rode that momentum for the remainder of the season that culminated with a final No. 5 ranking in the Associated Press poll, the highest for a Notre Dame team in more than 30 years. Brey’s squad grabbed the attention of the nation with its 56-51 victory over No. 2 Pittsburgh at the Petersen Events Center over the No. 2 Panthers on January 24, 2011. The victory was the first-ever in six appearances at the Petersen Events Center and snapped the Panthers’ 20-game home win streak as Notre Dame handed Pittsburgh just its 12th loss in 157 home contests. It also marked the highest ranked team a Notre Dame squad had defeated during the Brey era. His squad completed an undefeated season at home for the third time in five campaigns as the Irish finished with a 17-0 mark. Over the last five years,

Notre Dame has the most BIG EAST regular-season wins at home and ranks seventh nationally with a .933 winning percentage (84-6 record). Notre Dame nearly made a sweep of the BIG EAST top honors as Ben Hansbrough became the fourth Notre Dame player (third under Brey) to win BIG EAST player-of-the-year accolades, while Tim Abromaitis was named the league’s scholar athlete of the year for men’s basketball for the second time in as many seasons. Entering his 12th season on the Irish bench, Brey’s name has become synonymous with Notre Dame basketball and success. As the third longest-tenured coach in the BIG EAST Conference behind Boeheim (Syracuse) and Calhoun (Connecticut), he has brought a feeling of confidence and stability to a program with a long and storied tradition. Brey ranks as the sixth all-time winningest coach in BIG EAST history with 119 regular-season and tournament victories. His Irish teams have won 10 or more regular-season contests in seven of 11 seasons. In 16 seasons as a head coach, he owns an overall record of 337-172 for a .662 winning percentage and a 238120 (.665) mark in 11 campaigns with the Irish.

PLAYERS

The Mike Brey File University of Notre Dame - Head Coach (2000-present)

He picked up his 300th career win less than a week later on Jan. 5, 2010 at USF when his team pulled out a thrilling 74-73 victory on the road. Brey’s 100th BIG EAST victory was a very special one as it came close to the area in which he grew up — Washington, D.C. On Feb. 27, 2010, his Irish squad upset nationally-ranked Georgetown, 78-64, at the Verizon Center. In ‘09-’10, Brey guided Notre Dame to its sixth NCAA tournament appearance and 30th berth overall in school history. The Irish finished the campaign with a 23-12 record and posted its sixth 10-win BIG EAST regular season with a 10-8 mark. Fourteen games into the conference regular-season, Notre Dame stood 6-8 in league play and was without the services of three-time All-American Luke Harangody who went down with a knee injury in mid-February. Having to reinvent his squad minus its top scorer and rebounder, Notre Dame rattled off four straight wins over ranked opponents en route to advancing to the semifinals of the BIG EAST Championship for the second time in four years and third time in 10 seasons. The Irish dropped a two-point decision (53-51) to eventual champion and Final Four participant West Virginia. Brey employed a “burn offense” during that final stretch of the season that earned him the praise of his coaching peers and the wonderment of the college basketball world. The revamped tactic established a very methodical offensive style that made the most of every possession. Notre Dame’s fourth straight 20-win campaign in ‘09-’10 was a first since the mid-1980’s when Phelps’ teams won 20plus games from 1983-89. Selected by his coaching peers as the BIG EAST Coach of the Year in 2007 and 2008, Brey was just the third coach in BIG EAST history — following Carnesecca of St. John’s in 1985 and 1986 and P.J. Carlesimo of Seton Hall in 1988 and 1989 — to win the coaching accolade in consecutive years after leading his teams to two of the most successful back-to-back campaigns in the program’s 107-year history. His selection as BIG EAST Coach of the Year in ’08 marked the third such honor during his 13-year career as he was named America East Co-Coach of the Year in 1997 when he was the head coach at the University of Delaware.

2011-12 OUTLOOK

Brey’s 200th win at Notre Dame came in the Irish’s first BIG EAST game of the season when his team defeated Providence 93-78 on Dec. 30, 2009. With the victory, he became only the third coach in school history to reach the 200-win plateau. Only George Keogan (327 victories from 1923-43) and Digger Phelps (393 wins from 1971-91) own more wins than Brey from the Irish sidelines.

INTRODUCTION

His positive demeanor as a players’ coach and his willingness to become an involved, active and valued member for the entire University community, have made him a perfect fit for Notre Dame. During the 2009-10 campaign, Brey reached three milestones as he earned his 300th career win, his 200th victory at Notre Dame and his 100th BIG EAST win that includes both regular season and tournament games. When he earned his 100th league victory, he became only the sixth coach in conference history to accomplish that feat.


Mike Brey

Mike Brey is the sixth all-time winningest coach in BIG EAST Conference history with 119 victories in regular season and tournament games.

During the 2006-07 and 2007-08 seasons, Notre Dame compiled a 4916 overall record for a 75.4 winning percentage and 25-9 (.735) mark in BIG EAST play, marking the best two-year record in terms of wins and winning percentage since the Irish joined the BIG EAST in 1995-96. Brey engineered one of the most successful campaigns in Notre Dame history in ’07-’08 as he guided his team to a 25-8 record (third most wins in school history) and a program-best 14-4 record in BIG EAST play. The Irish tied for second in the final regular-season standings after being chosen ninth in the Coaches’ Preseason Poll. The 25 wins had been the most ever under Brey and most since the 1973-74 campaign when that Irish team finished with a 26-3 mark. Notre Dame also led the nation in assists at 18.4 per game. Since his arrival, Brey has put his signature on the Irish basketball program. After 11 successful campaigns, he has a BIG EAST Conference championship banner, seven NCAA tournament appearances and a trip to the Sweet 16 in 2003 to his credit. His teams have averaged better than 20 wins per season and have won better than 66-percent of their contests.

48

The Irish made history in ’07-’08 as they completed their second straight season undefeated at home. It marked the first time in the 40-year history of the Joyce Center that a Notre Dame team had been undefeated at home in consecutive campaigns and the first time in conference history that a BIG EAST team finished undefeated at home in back-to-back seasons. The Irish finished ’07-’08 with a 17-0 record at home, following an 18-0 mark (school record for wins) in ’06-’07. Notre Dame owned a 45-game win streak at the Joyce Center — longest home win streak in school history — that began with a 66-61 victory over DePaul on March 4, 2006, and ended with a 6961 setback to Connecticut on Jan. 24, 2009. At the time of the loss, Notre Dame owned the nation’s longest home win streak. In addition, with its 88-79 victory over Seton Hall on Jan. 10, 2009, Notre Dame tied Pittsburgh for the conference’s all-time home court win streak with its 20th consecutive league victory at home. A 24-year veteran of the collegiate ranks, he was the head coach at Delaware from 1995-2000 and an assistant coach at Duke University from 1987-95. He has mentored three BIG EAST player-of-the-year honorees during his tenure — Troy Murphy in ’01, Luke Harangody in ’08 and Hansbrough in ’11. He has had at least one player earn all-conference honors in each of his 11 seasons and has coached nine firstteam all-BIG EAST selections. Notre Dame placed two players on the all-BIG EAST first team in both ‘07 and ’08 and is the only BIG EAST program to have a first-team all-conference selection each of the last six years. He is the only coach in the 106-year history of the program to lead his teams to three consecutive 20-win seasons and three straight NCAA tournament berths in his first three seasons. Brey also is just the second coach (the other being Digger Phelps) in school history to register five 20-win campaigns in his first nine years. As a head coach, nine of his teams have advanced to the NCAA tournament and have made 13 overall postseason appearances, including five in the NIT. From 1997-2003, Brey guided his teams at both Notre Dame and Delaware to six consecutive 20-win seasons. His 1999-2000 Blue Hen squad and 2002-03 and 2006-07 Irish teams posted 24 wins, registering 24-8, 24-10

and 24-8 records, respectively. He was honored in 2003 by the NABC as its District 10 Coach of the Year. The ’06-’07 campaign proved to be one of Brey’s finest coaching efforts as he took a squad that was picked to finish 11th in the BIG EAST Preseason Coaches’ poll and guided that team to a 24-8 record and 11-5 mark in BIG EAST play following a 16-14 record and 6-10 campaign in league play the previous season. The Irish finished fourth in the final conference regular-season standings to earn a first-round bye in the BIG EAST Championship and advanced to the semifinals of the tournament for just the second time in school history. The 11-5 BIG EAST mark at the time matched the best record and most wins by a Notre Dame team since becoming a league member in 1995-96. Notre Dame also was the only team in the BIG EAST to finish the season undefeated at home (18-0). It marked the most wins at the Joyce Center since its opening in 1968-69 and the third undefeated season for an Irish team at home during the regular season. His recruiting impact has been felt on the Notre Dame program with the enrollment of McDonald’s and Parade All-Americans — Chris Thomas in the fall of 2001, Torin Francis in 2002 and Luke Zeller in 2005. In addition, Thomas and Zeller, both Indiana natives, won the prestigious Mr. Indiana Basketball award and are the only two recipients of the honor to come to Notre Dame. Regarded as a true gentleman in the game today, Brey traveled to Kuwait in May of 2007 as part of Operation Hardwood IV, an event sponsored by the United Service Organization (USO) and Armed Forces Entertainment. For the Irish head coach, being amongst the service men and women proved to be a life-changing and powerful experience. In ’08, he was the recipient of the inaugural Skip Prosser award named after the late Wake Forest head coach and one of Brey’s closest friends in the coaching profession.

INTRODUCTION

Mike Brey vs. Opponents

Mike Brey NCAA Success at Notre Dame Prior to Brey’s arrival, Irish teams had not received an NCAA tournament bid in more than a decade. Before the berth in 2001, Notre Dame’s last back-to-back NCAA appearances were in 1989 and 1990. Brey’s teams have faired well in their seven NCAA trips. In ’01, as the No. 6 seed in the Midwest Region, Notre Dame defeated No. 11 seed Xavier, 8371, and then dropped a 69-56 decision to No. 3 seed Mississippi. Earning a No. 8 seed in the South Region in ’02, Notre Dame dismantled No. 9 seed Charlotte, 82-63, in the first round before falling to top-ranked and defending national champion Duke, 8477, in second-round action. In ’03, Brey and the Irish were focused on getting past the first weekend of basketball in March. Ranked for most of the season, Notre Dame earned a No. 5 seed in the West Region and played its first two NCAA games at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis. The Irish escaped with a 70-69 victory over No. 12 seed Wisconsin-Milwaukee in its first-round game and then beat No. 4 seed Illinois 68-60 for their first Sweet 16 appearance since 1987. Notre Dame made its fourth appearance in seven seasons under Brey in ’07 by earning an at-large berth as the No. 6 seed in the Midwest Region. In ’08, the Irish received an at-large bid as the No. 5 seed in the East Region and earned a first-round victory over No. 12 seed George Mason. After its run at the end of the ‘09-’10 season, which saw the Irish win its final four regular-season contests and two BIG EAST tournament games, Notre Dame was the No. 6 seed in the NCAA South Regional. The Irish earned a No. 2 seed in the Southwest Regional last year. That matched the highest seed for a Notre Dame team since 1981.

Making Notre Dame into a BIG EAST Contender Currently the third-longest tenured coach in the league (behind Boeheim of Syracuse and Calhoun of Connecticut), Brey has guided the Irish to success in the BIG EAST Conference, leading his teams to a 112-72 regular-season mark (.609). In 10 of the last 11 seasons, Notre Dame has won nine or more games and posted 10-plus wins in seven of those campaigns.

Prior to the 2005-06 campaign, Notre Dame and Syracuse owned the distinction of being the only two schools to post winning conference records from 2000-05. Before being named head coach prior to the start of the 2000-01 campaign, Irish teams were just 35-53 (.398) in their first five seasons in the league. Less than nine months after Brey was named head coach, Notre Dame captured its first BIG EAST regularseason title with an 11-5 record in league play. The 11 conference wins were the most by an Irish team since becoming a league member in 199596 as Brey’s squad clinched the league crown with a week remaining in the regular season. Under Brey, Notre Dame was the only BIG EAST school to win 10-plus games from 2000-03 (his first three seasons). The Irish posted an 11-5 record in 200001 and 10-6 marks in both 2001-02 and 2002-03. In addition, the Irish were the only league team that played in the NCAA tournament in ’01, ’02 and ’03. The Irish’s 21 BIG EAST wins were matched only by Connecticut and Boston College during the two-year period from 2000-02. Brey’s 31 BIG EAST regular-season wins in his first three seasons were, at the time, the third-most (tying him with Rollie Massimino of Villanova) by a coach in his first three seasons in the league. Despite posting 9-7 records during the 2003-04 and 2004-05 campaigns, the Irish fell short of an NCAA tournament berth on both occasions. Notre Dame

was the only team from one of the six major conferences (ACC, BIG EAST, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10 and SEC) to have a winning record in league play that did not receive an NCAA bid in each of those two seasons. Notre Dame’s 6-10 BIG EAST record in 2005-06 marked the first losing season under Brey. After beginning the conference regular season 1-8, Notre Dame went 5-2 down the stretch to earn a spot in the 12-team BIG EAST Tournament field. The 10 BIG EAST losses were by a combined 35 points (3.5 per game). The Irish rebounded in ’06-’07 to finish 11-5 in BIG EAST regular-season play and advanced to the semifinals of the league championship at New York’s Madison Square Garden for just the second time in school history. The Irish earned their semifinal appearance with an 89-83 quarterfinal victory over Syracuse and then bowed to eventual tournament champion Georgetown, 84-82, in the semifinals in what many considered one of the greatest tournament games in conference history. The 12 wins at the time over BIG EAST foes (11 during the regular season and one in the conference championship) marked the most by a Notre Dame team over league foes prior to the 2007-08 campaign when that Irish squad finished with a program-best 14-4 regular-season record. In ’10-’11, Notre Dame’s conference win total was a program-best 15 that included the 14 wins during the regular season and one in the BIG EAST tournament. 2011-12 MEN’ S DAME BASKETBALL NOTRE

BIG EAST

Brey’s track record of developing players has been evident when BIG EAST honors have been announced. In each of his 11 seasons, he has had at least one player earn all-conference honors. In all, nine players have been selected for first-team honors during his 11-year tenure. Notre Dame is the only school that has had a first team selection each of the last six seasons. Ben Hansbrough became the most recent Irish honoree as he was a unanimous first-team selection in ‘11 and the school’s fourth player-of-theyear selection as he averaged 20.7 points per game in league play. In addition, Tim Abromaitis copped thirdteam all-league honors in addition to claiming the conference’s men’s basketball scholar-athlete of the year honor and earning first-team Capital One Academic All-America honors for the second time in as many seasons. In ’10, Luke Harangody, who finished as the second all-time leading scorer and rebounder at Notre Dame with 2,478 points and 1,222 rebounds, carved a unique niche in the BIG EAST history

as one of only 11 three-time first-team all-conference honorees and the only player in league history to average better than 20.0 points and 10.0 rebounds in conference play as he finished off his career with averages of 20.4 points and 10.2 rebounds. Harangody, who became the first player in 2008-09 to lead the conference in scoring and rebounding in back-to-back seasons, finished as the conference’s third all-time leading scorer (1,329 points) and second leading rebounder (662). For the second straight year in ’08, Notre Dame placed two players on the all-conference first team — Harangody and Kyle McAlarney — and was one of just two schools (the other being Connecticut) that had two players earn a spot on the first team. The previous year in ’07 marked the first time in school history that the Irish had two players earn first-team all-league honors when Russell Carter and Colin Falls were selected, while Harangody and Tory Jackson garnered all-rookie team accolades. It marked the biggest award haul for the Irish in its 13-year history of being a BIG EAST

In addition, Quinn was named a first-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America honoree, the school’s first Academic All-America selection since 1998. He also was named to the Associated Press honorable mention All-America team. In ’05, Chris Thomas became the first Irish player to earn all-conference honors all four years when he was named a third-team selection. He also was a third-team honoree in ’02 and a second-team selection in both ’03 and ’04. A two-time Associated Press honorable mention honoree, he was named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Year in ’02, in addition to being selected to the league’s all-rookie team. Thomas also became Notre Dame’s first selection to the BIG EAST Championship all-tournament team, while Carter would join him on that list in 2007. Basketball Times and Basketball News named Thomas, who was part of Brey’s first recruiting class at Notre Dame, the national freshman of the year following his sensational rookie campaign.

INTRODUCTION

BIG EAST Coaching Percentage


Mike Brey From 2001-03, Notre Dame produced a first-team BIG EAST selection in each of those three seasons. In Brey’s first season, Troy Murphy shared co-BIG EAST player-of-the-year honors and was a unanimous first team selection. In addition, he was a consensus AllAmerica selection for the second time in his career. Ryan Humphrey followed Murphy as a first-team selection in ’02 as he also went on to earn second-team AllAmerica honors from Basketball News. Matt Carroll, who concluded his career as the school’s career three-point scoring leader, continued the streak in ’03 and also garnered AP honorable mention All-America honors. David Graves was a BIG EAST honorable mention selection in ’02 (the third Irish player to earn all-conference honors that season) as was Torin Francis in ’04 in his freshman season. As a freshman, Francis also became the second Irish player under Brey to be named to the all-rookie team. Notre Dame was one of only four schools (the others were Duke, Indiana and Stanford) to have a player selected in the first round of the ’01 and ’02 NBA drafts. In the ’02 draft, Humphrey was chosen as the 19th pick overall, while Murphy was the 14th player drafted in ’01. In the ‘10 draft, Harangody became the third player under Brey to get drafted as he was the 52nd pick overall by the Boston Celtics.

The Notre Dame Years Brey’s inaugural season at Notre Dame after being named the program’s 17th head coach on July 14, 2000 could qualify as nothing short of a whirlwind. In his debut on the Irish sidelines on Nov. 18, the 51-year-old Rockville, Md., native, led the Irish to a 104-58 victory over Sacred Heart to earn his 100th career coaching victory. Brey guided his team to 19 wins during the regular season, the most by an Irish first-year coach, and also became just the second coach in school history to take his team to the NCAA tournament in his first season. Notre Dame finished with a 20-10 record overall and an 11-5 mark in BIG EAST play as the Irish captured the West Division crown. En route to the divisional crown, Notre Dame notched eight consecutive league wins and five straight road victories for the first time as a BIG EAST member. The Irish also produced three

wins over top-10 teams (Georgetown, Boston College and Syracuse) for the first time since the 1991-92 campaign. His squad finished 19th in the final AP ranking (and were ranked as high as 10th at one time during the season) for the program’s first ranking on a national basis since ’89. During the 2001-02 campaign, the Irish finished with a 22-11 record and 10-6 mark in the West Division, good for second place in the final regularseason standings. Notre Dame earned a first-round bye in the conference post-season tournament and advanced to the semifinals of the championship for the first time, after posting its firstever BIG EAST tournament victory in the quarterfinal round. The 2002-03 campaign marked just the sixth time at that point — and first since 1986-87 — a Notre Dame team had won 24 or more games. In recording a 24-10 record, the Irish defeated five top-10 opponents for the first time in school history. Those victories over top-10 teams also were the most by any school that season. The wins over those schools included a string of three straight (No. 10 Marquette, No. 8 Maryland and No. 2 Texas) in a sixday stretch in early December of ’02. It also marked the first time in school history that Notre Dame defeated three consecutive top-10 opponents. After those three victories, the Irish made their season debut in the Associated Press ranking at No. 10 after being unranked prior to that point. It was the third-highest leap in the polls since the ranking began including 25 teams. In defeating the defending national champion Terrapins and the Longhorns, Notre Dame captured the prestigious BB&T Classic in Washington, D.C. Notre Dame climbed to as high as fifth in the polls and finished the season 20th in the AP ranking and 15th in the ESPN/USA Today Poll. The success for the Irish in the ’03 NCAA tournament was notable as the Irish earned the No. 5 seed in the West Region, marking the highest seed for a Notre Dame team since ’87. Notre Dame won a pair of games — 70-69 vs. WisconsinMilwaukee and 68-60 vs. Illinois — to reach the Sweet 16 for the first time since the ’86-’87 campaign. In all 11 seasons under Brey, Notre Dame has advanced to the postseason. From 2004-06, the Irish played in the National Invitation Tournament. His 2003-04 and 2004-05 teams narrowly

missed making the NCAAs with the ’03’04 squad finishing with a 19-13 record overall and 9-7 mark in BIG EAST play, while the ’04-’05 unit was 17-12 and 9-7 in the BIG EAST. The ’05-’06 team advanced to the second round of the NIT and finished with a 16-14 overall record and 6-10 mark in the BIG EAST. Notre Dame’s current string of five consecutive 20-win seasons is the longest stretch since 1983-89 when Irish teams registered six straight campaigns of 20 or more wins.

His Coaching Pedigree In 16 seasons as a head coach, Brey’s teams have won three conference titles. And while the accomplishments of the past 11 seasons and in his coaching career are impressive, one can’t help but be captivated by his contagious enthusiasm and genuine sincerity. He’s a man whose basketball bloodlines are as impressive as any coach in the collegiate ranks today. Brey has a true passion for the game. He is an individual who appreciates the bonds and relationships he forms with his players, and a coach who understands the impact he can have on a player’s life. He is, in no uncertain terms, a man who cares about the young men he coaches. 2011-12 MEN’ S DAME BASKETBALL NOTRE

HISTORY

Prior to entering the collegiate ranks, Brey spent five seasons as an assistant coach at his high school alma mater, DeMatha High School in Hyattsville, Md., under Wootten before taking the assistant’s post at Duke. He served as DeMatha head junior varsity coach and varsity assistant beginning in 1982. During the five years, DeMatha combined to finish 139-22 while claiming four league crowns and two city titles — as well as a number-one ranking by USA Today in 1984. As a player, he played for two seasons at DeMatha and helped the Stags finish with a combined 55-9 record. Brey received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from DeMatha in October of 2003.

As the No. 13 seed in the NCAA East Regional, the Blue Hens pushed 20th-ranked Tennessee to the final buzzer, but fell 62-52. In 1999-2000, Delaware finished 24-8 (14-4 in conference play) and received a bid to the National Invitation Tournament, losing to Villanova in the first round. His teams’ on-court success during those five seasons helped set Delaware attendance records as well. The Blue Hens in 1998-99 averaged a record 4,815 fans (in 5,000-seat Bob Carpenter Center), including nine sellouts. Then in 1999-2000, they topped that figure with a 4,989 average and a dozen sellouts. In Brey’s five seasons with the Blue Hens, Delaware ranked as the only America East team to finish in the top half of the league standings in each of those seasons. His .659 winning percentage over the last eight years ranks as the second-best in the country (behind only Michigan State’s Tom Izzo) among those Division I head coaches who took over programs in 1995-96. Success for Brey’s teams at Delaware was not limited to the court. While at Delaware, every senior who completed his eligibility graduated. Mike Pegues, an all-America East forward, was a third-team Academic All-American and America East Scholar-Athlete of the Year for 1997-98.

PLAYERS

The Delaware Years Brey led Delaware to unprecedented success during his five-year tenure as the Blue Hens’ head coach from 19952000 including postseason bids in each of his last three seasons. Brey brought to Notre Dame a wealth of basketball experience and all the characteristics necessary for success. In the span of five seasons at Delaware, he guided the Blue Hens to success never before experienced in the program’s history. His five years at Delaware combined to produce a 99-52 record for Brey, including a 60-30 mark in America East competition. Prior to his arrival at the Newark, Del., school, Delaware had made only two previous trips to the NCAA tournament — but doubled that total in his third and fourth seasons. In 1997-98, Brey copped co-America East coach-of-the-year honors after his team finished with a 2010 overall record and won the America East Conference title with a 12-6 mark. The Blue Hens earned the No. 15 seed in the NCAA Midwest Regional and lost to Purdue in the first round. That campaign signaled what would be the first of three consecutive 20-win seasons for Brey at Delaware, a first in the program’s history. In Brey’s first two seasons, the Blue Hens were 30-28, finishing with a 15-12 mark in 1995-96 and 15-16 in 1996-97.

INTRODUCTION

Reared in a home with two parents as educators, coaching appears to have been a natural profession for Brey to pursue. Associations with legendary coaches Morgan Wootten and Mike Krzyzewski have molded his philosophy and strengthened his foundation as a man and coach who is destined to continue Notre Dame’s return to national prominence. A former player and assistant coach for Wootten at DeMatha High School and a veteran of eight seasons as an assistant on the bench next to Krzyzewski at Duke, where he helped the Blue Devils to six NCAA Final Four appearances and two national championships, success has been an integral part of Brey’s life as both a player and coach. Having missed out on the Irish head coaching vacancy in March of 1999, Brey earned another shot at the only coaching job he coveted while the head coach at Delaware. When Matt Doherty left for the University of North Carolina in July after just one season, Brey was the man targeted by Notre Dame for the post.

An Active Member of the Coaches vs. Cancer Program Mike Brey’s dedication and involvement with the Coaches vs. Cancer (CVC) Program continues to produce record-setting numbers in the South Bend and Michiana areas. Notre Dame ranks as a leader among universities and colleges across the country in funds raised for CVC and the American Cancer Society. Since 2002, Brey and his wife Tish have raised more than $2 million for the South Bend/Michiana community’s fight against cancer. The couple has always been generous with their time and support for the program dating back to when Brey was the head coach at Delaware. While at the Newark, Del., school, they were actively involved in the CVC cause and helped make Delaware one of the top fundraising schools in the country. Brey was the recipient of the 2003 CVC Champion Award, given annually by the CVC National Council and the National Association of Basketball Coaches. He has been a national board member of the Council since February of ‘03. He and Tish have been honored with several awards for their efforts in the community and were recipients of the ‘07 Franklin D. Roosevelt Award presented by the March of Dimes for their volunteer service to the South Bend area. In September of ’09, Brey was among five head coaches to travel to Washington, D.C., to participate in

An Athletic Family A standout guard in college, he played three seasons at Northwestern Louisiana State (now Northwestern State) from 1977-80, leading the team in assists and steals all three years. He still ranks fifth at the school in all-time assists with 311, while his 180 assists during his sophomore season in 1978-79 ranks as the fourth best single-season total in school history. Brey played his final collegiate season at George Washington, transferring to the Washington, D.C., school following the 1979-80 season. After sitting out the 1980-81 season, he averaged 5.0 points and 4.8 rebounds in his senior season with the Colonials. He served as team captain and earned team MVP honors in his only year of competition at the school. Brey hails from an athletic family that still remains actively involved in high school and collegiate athletics. His father Paul was a high school athletics director in Maryland, while his mother, the former Betty Mullen, was the women’s swim coach at George Washington, and perhaps the family’s most accomplished athlete. She attended Purdue University and swam for the AAU team in West Lafayette while attending school. For a time, she held the world record in the 100-yard and 100-meter butterfly events and competed with the U.S. team at the

1956 Olympics in Melbourne, Australia. She still competes in masters swimming events and is a member of the Indiana Swimming Hall of Fame, located in Indianapolis. His mother also was a Purdue majorette and was present in Notre Dame Stadium on Oct. 7, 1950, when the 19th-ranked Boilermakers upset the topranked Irish 27-14 in football. In addition, her brother Jack Mullen played guard at Duke on that school’s first Atlantic Coast Conference championship team in 1960. Brey’s younger sister, Brenda, swam competitively at LSU and is a physical education teacher in the Rockville area. His younger brother, Shane, was a former high school standout at Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, Md. Brey served a four-year term as chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Rules Committee in and was elected to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Board of Directors in April ’08. He also received a Notre Dame honorary monogram in December of 2006. Born March 22, 1959, Brey is a 1982 graduate of George Washington, with a degree in physical education. He is married to the former Tish Schlapo, formerly a volleyball standout at George Washington and assistant volleyball coach at Delaware. The couple has two children — Kyle, 24 (born Jan. 11, 1987) and Callie, 21 (born April 5, 1990). Kyle was an all-star tight end at Penn High School and a four-year member of the football team at the University of Buffalo. Kyle currently is on the football staff at the University of Kansas, while Callie is an assistant girls volleyball coach for a high school team in Michigan.

In 2007-08, Solomon was a member of the University of Dayton men’s basketball staff. He helped the Flyers to a 23-11 record that season and a spot in the quarterfinals of the National Invitation Tournament. In addition, Dayton was ranked for four weeks during the season and climbed to as high as 14th in the polls. Solomon was a key part of Brey’s first staff when he became head coach at Notre Dame in July of 2000. Solomon was an instrumental part in Notre Dame resurgence from 2000-03 at the national level as Irish teams compiled a 66-31 record for a .680 winning percentage and a 31-17 mark (.646) in BIG EAST play. The Irish advanced to the NCAA tournament each of those three seasons, including an appearance in the 2003 Sweet 16 for the first time by an Irish team since 1987.

2010-11

SEASON IN REVIEW From 2007-11, Tyrone Nash helped guide Notre Dame to the best fouryear overall record and best BIG EAST regular-season mark in program history. Irish teams produced 96-42 (.696) and 46-26 (.639) marks, respectively, in addition to making three NCAA tournament appearances and advancing to the semifinal of the BIG EAST tournament on two occasions. 2011-12 NOTRE DAME BASKETBALL


2010-11 Season In Review Brey Nabs National Coach Of The Year Honors Mike Brey was selected as the Associated Press National Coach of the Year and also was the recipient of the Henry Iba Coach of the Year Award (presented by the United States Basketball Writers) in 2011. He is the first Notre Dame coach to win either one of the two accolades.

In Elite Company

Mike Brey, pictured here with Jimmer Fredette of BYU, was named the Associated Press Coach of the Year after leading Notre Dame to the most wins in the modern era as the Irish finished with a 27-7 record after beginning the 2010-11 campaign unranked. Brey’s squad ended the season fifth in the final AP Poll.

Super Season Notre Dame finished the season with a 27-7 record and 14-4 mark in BIG EAST play as the Irish posted their fifth consecutive 20-win campaign. The 27 wins were the most ever during Mike Brey’s tenure in the most in the modern era. Notre Dame’s 15 league wins overall (14 regular season, one tournament) were the most combined victories by an Irish team in program history.

BIG EAST Best The 14-4 mark in BIG EAST play matched the most wins and best record during the conference regular season in program history. The win total matched tied the best mark by a Notre Dame team previously set during the 2007-08 season.

Poll Watching Notre Dame finished fifth in the final Associated Press ranking (its highest since the 1978-79 campaign) and 14th in the ESPN/USA Today poll. The Irish entered the polls in late November and steadily climbed the rankings throughout the season. Notre Dame reached as high as fourth in both of the polls in the first week of March.

High Times Notre Dame’s appearance as the No. 2 seed in the Southwest Regional was the second consecutive trip to the NCAA Championship for the Irish and seventh under head coach Mike Brey. It was the highest seed in the NCAA tournament field for an Irish team since 1981.

Beating The Best The Irish were 8-3 versus ranked foes during the season that including seven in the regular season. The eight wins were the most ever in program history and included seven straight. Notre Dame strung together seven straight wins over ranked foes during the season.

Postseason Stretch Notre Dame has earned appearances in the postseason in each of the last 12 years, which marks the longest stretch in school history. The Irish have been to the NCAA Tournament on seven occasions and the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) five times during this current stretch.

In addition to picking up national coach-of-the-year honors, Mike Brey was named the BIG EAST Coach of the Year for the third time in five seasons. Brey is in elite company as one of just five coaches in league history to win the award on three or more occasions. Jim Calhoun and Jim Boeheim have garnered the honor four times, while Lou Carnesecca and John Thompson were recipients of the award three times. In addition to 2011, Brey also was named the league’s coach of the year in 2007 and 2008. He is one of just three coaches in conference history to win the award in back-to-back seasons.

Hansbrough Haul Ben Hansbrough’s selection as the 2011 BIG EAST Player of the Year marked the fourth time since Notre Dame joined the conference in 1995-96 that an Irish player has won the league’s top honor. Pat Garrity was Notre Dame’s first-ever recipient 1997, followed by Troy Murphy in 2000 and 2001 and Luke Harangody in 2008. A consensus NCAA second team All-American, he was the only unanimous selection on the six-member firstteam all-BIG EAST squad.

Six-In-A-Row Notre Dame has had one or more players garner first team all-BIG EAST honors each of the last six seasons and is the only school that has produced a first-team honoree from 2006-2011.

2011-12 NOTRE DAME BASKETBALL


BIG EAST Timeline January 18, 1997 Notre Dame, behind a 22-point performance by Pat Garrity, defeats Syracuse for the second time during the 1996-97 season as the Irish earn a 73-58 victory at the Carrier Dome. It marked Notre Dame’s first sweep in BIG EAST regular-season play. Notre Dame took a landmark step in 1995-96 when its basketball team began competing as a member of the BIG EAST Conference. Beginning with its inaugural season in 1898, the Irish program enjoyed success as a basketball independent. The 2011-12 campaign marks Notre Dame’s 17th as a member of the league. Notre Dame had one of its most memorable seasons in 2010-11 since becoming a conference member as the Irish finished second in the final BIG EAST regular-season standing with a 14-4 mark (matching the best record in program history). Over the course of the past five seasons, Notre Dame has been one of the league’s most consistent teams and is tied for third in regular season wins (57) and winning percentage (.648). While the first five years saw moderate success, the last 11 seasons under head coach Mike Brey have signaled a resurgence as the Irish have become one of the conference’s most successful programs. Since the arrival of head coach Mike Brey, Notre Dame has won nearly 61 percent of its regular-season contests. The Irish hung a championship banner in the Joyce Center for the first time in the program’s history when they won the BIG EAST West Division title in 2001. On five occasions, Notre Dame has produced the league’s player of the year and two rookie-ofthe-year honorees, while, 10 different players have earned first team all-BIG EAST honors.

February 22, 1997 With five players in double figures, Notre Dame beat Providence 86-74 in overtime at the Joyce Center. The 22 points scored by the Irish in overtime (they outscored the Friars 22-10) were the second-highest total in an overtime period by one team in BIG EAST history.

March 1, 2005 Chris Thomas becomes the first four-time all-BIG EAST honoree when he is selected as a third team allconference pick.

January 4, 2006 Chris Quinn scores a career-high 37 points and establishes a Petersen Events Center single-game high in Notre Dame’s 100-97 double-overtime loss to Pittsburgh in the league opener for both teams.
