It's Hoops Season | by Pat

Tomorrow is football, but tonight marks the kickoff of the 2007-2008 men's basketball season with an exhibition game against the mighty Fighting Bees of St. Ambrose. Consider this post a helpful reminder that you can follow the hoops team all season long on top notch ND hoops blogs like Black and Green and Notes from the Geetar as well as generous helpings of hoops related content at Dome and Domer.

Also, ND will stream all home Notre Dame non-conference games live on starting with tonight's glorified scrimmage so make sure to tune in and cheer on this year's squad. There is plenty of talent with two-time captain Rob Kurz, Luke Harangody (out with an injury for this game), Tory Jackson, Kyle McAlarney, and Ryan Ayers settling in as the initial starting five and it should be an exciting year.

It's also a notable year for ND hoops as in 15 days, Notre Dame's Austin Carr will be inducted into the newly opened Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame along with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Dick Groat, and Dick Barnett. Make sure to bookmark or set up your RSS feeds (if you haven't already) for the previously mentioned blogs.
