Summer a first chance for Notre Dame men’s basketball to make a jump


Seated in an area that doubled as a Zoom interview room at Greensboro (N.C.) Coliseum, Notre Dame guard Prentiss Hubb stared into the camera in March and offered his opinion on what was coming next.

Running on fumes, the Irish had just lost a second round Atlantic Coast Conference tournament game by 42 points to North Carolina. After carrying possible NCAA tournament hopes into February, the Irish dropped five of their last seven, each in a frustrating fashion, and looked nothing like a tournament team in finishing 11-15.

Hubb was asked what would/will the Irish have to do in 2021-22 to return to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2016-17?

Notre Dame men's basketball coach Mike Brey has seemingly reinvented himself yet again during the offseason.

“This offseason, we’ve got to work as hard as we ever did if we want to make the tournament and have respect in the league and the NCAA,” Hubb said. “We all as a whole each (need to) sit down and look at our game and how we can fit in with this team and just work. It’s the only thing we really can do.”
