For the first time in school history the ESPN's College Basketball Gameday show will visit the Joyce Center for the Big East match-up vs Connecticut. College Basketball Gameday usually visits teams where the students are loud and where they are great games played, and Notre Dame certainly fits the bill.
ND basketball is becoming increasingly popular. It seems more and more games are nationally televised every year. By coming to the campus, College Basketball Gameday will only increase Notre Dame's rising basketball popularity and will help to make the college known for something other than football. This season is already becoming exciting.
