Adrian Dantley will be honored as Notre Dame’s fourth player in The Ring of Honor tonight at Purcell Pavilion.
He was one hell of a player. I used to love watching him play at ND and in the NBA. Nobody could pump fake under the basket like AD even to this day.
Nice summary. I remember how he was almost automatic once he got in close and the only question was "would it be 2, or would it be a three point play". I recall the announcer, I think it was Billy Packer saying "score it" as soon as he got the ball inside.
Digger has to be the next one to go in the ROH, right?
My luck w/the Irish 20-6...GO IRISH!!!
I feel Dantley should have been the first one in the ring of honor. Well deserved.

That probably wouldn't be a bad guess. You have the top three scorers on there all-time amongst the players, so the next step might be a coach. The fact that no other coach in NCAA history beat more No. 1 teams (5) on the same floor is special in itself, but Digger also knew how to amp the crowd and shake down the thunder in the ACC — at least in the 1970s — better than anyone who's been in that edifice.
With all due respect, Austin Carr is the standard. The ACC opened the same year that Carr began his varsity career at ND (1968), and it soon became labeled Austin Carr Coliseum. The two go hand in hand.

Lou, i actually forgot that. I guess i should have said Carr. My bad. But i feel he should have been second after Carr.
