Notre Dame Fighting Irish Basketball Schedule

Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center is one of the most exciting venues in all of college basketball and when you are in the stands as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish take to the hardwood it will be impossible not to get caught up in all of the excitement. Last season the Fighting Irish had a tough go of it during their first season in the ACC but they are looking to really turn things around in the 2014-2015 season now that they are more familiar with the landscape in their new conference. Notre Dame has plenty of scores to settle with their new conference foes and have been putting in work all off season to make sure they are well prepared to do so. Navigating through the daunting ACC regular season schedule is never an easy task but the Irish appear ready to do so as the new college basketball season gets underway.

Notre Dame will have the chance to meet up with some old Big East foes this year as they take on the Syracuse Orange, the Pitt Panthers, and the Louisville Cardinals in addition to the perennial ACC powerhouses like the Virginia Cavaliers, the Duke Blue Devils, the North Carolina Tar Heels, and others. All of the most die hard Fighting Irish fans will be flocking to Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center to give the home team the support they need to pile up some big wins and earn a return trip to the NCAA Tournament so be sure to get your Notre Dame basketball tickets from StubHub soon while the best seats in the house are still available. The Fighting Irish are poised to make a return to prominence this year so get in on the excitement right from the start.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish Basketball History

Notre Dame may be best known for the football team but the basketball team at the university dates all the way back to 1898 and won two National Championships back in 1927 and 1936 before the NCAA Tournament came into existence. The Fighting Irish have made the NCAA Tournament 33 times and advanced to the Final Four in 1978. Notre Dame had made the Tournament four straight years from 2010 through 2013 before missing out on the 2014 Tournament and will certainly be looking to make a return trip. Missing the NCAA Tournament combined with a first round exit from the ACC Tournament at the hands of Wake Forest has provided the Fighting Irish with plenty of motivation entering their second season in the ACC. As newcomers to the ACC Notre Dame does not yet have any long-running rivalries with the other schools in the conference but you can be sure that will all change very soon and they will already be looking to exact revenge on Wake Forest during their next meeting. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish will surely be looking to take down some of the powerhouse programs in the conference like Duke or North Carolina, and as the years go on the Fighting Irish will prove themselves to be regular contenders for the conference title the intensity of these games will reach another level. Notre Dame is not completely unfamiliar with all of the ACC schools as other Big East schools like Syracuse, Louisville, and Pittsburgh also joined the ACC with more schools to come in the future. It will be interesting to see which Big East rivalries spill over into the ACC as well as which new rivalries develop as the seasons go on.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish Basketball Conference

College basketball is virtually synonymous with the ACC and it is never easy for a team to navigate the tough conference schedule. Perennial powerhouses North Carolina and Duke always are staunch competition and with the recent addition of Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Louisville, and Notre Dame to the mix the conference is only getting tougher. Altogether the ACC has won 15 National Championships with North Carolina leading the way with five. Schools from the ACC have reached the Final Four sixty times and are always making a big impact in the Tournament. Playing such a tough regular season schedule annually leaves the teams from the ACC who are selected for the Tournament ready to take on any college in the country and allows for even some of the lower seeds to pull off big time upsets. When it comes to college basketball there is arguably no conference that is historically better or more dominant than the ACC.

The Experience

College basketball is an experience like no other. Featuring some of the best student athletes in the world along with some of the most passionate fans in all of sports, the games have an atmosphere that is unrivaled. When you set foot into Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center for a Notre Dame Fighting Irish home basketball game this will all be clear. As the teams set up for opening tip off the fans stand up and vociferously cheer for their alma mater and hometown favorites. The game continues full of back and forth action, big time shots, and clutch defensive stops. Before you know it the clock is winding down in the second half and the two sides are wrapped up in yet another tight contest. Your palms get sweaty with each trip down the floor and each time a player from your favorite team lets loose a shot you hold your breath until the ball tickles the twine. This continues until the final buzzer when the Fighting Irish's side erupts after another big win and their fans flow out of the arena in jubilation. Big things appear to be in store for Notre Dame and Fighting Irish fans can sense the excitement in the air as they pile intoPurcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center to get in on all of the action.


Notre Dame has had more three time consensus All-Americans than any other Division I program with former Fighting Irish stars Edward "Moose" Krause, John Moir, and Paul Nowak all receiving the distinction. Austin Carr won the AP, UPI, and Helms National Player of the Year in 1971.
