Behind the Scenes of an Epic Comeback: ND vs. Pitt Basketball

Some of Notre Dame Men's Basketball 21 wins have come easier than others. Count Monday's comeback of epic proportions among the more difficult.

After 14 minutes had elapsed at the "Zoo" in Pittsburgh, the Irish had managed to score a whopping three points. At that point, Head Coach Mike Brey decided he had seen enough, so he did what any self-respecting coach weary of an embarrassing loss would do - he earned himself a technical foul.

As you can hear in the video below, ND's radio announcer Jack Nolan was the most pleased he had ever been with a 3-point halftime deficit.

Ensuring their efforts weren't all for not, the Irish stormed out of the gates in the second half and eventually pulled away for a remarkable 51-42 victory over the home Panthers.

Notre Dame's digital media team has done an outstanding job over the past few years delivering high-quality behind the scenes content, and the following is no exception.


Next up for the Irish is a reeling Cincinnati squad who has lost four out of their last five games. Tune in to CBS at 2pm EST this Sunday to see if the Irish can put another "L" in the Bearcats' loss column.
