With legend Austin Carr to be added to the Ring of Honor Saturday, ND men's basketball coach Mike Brey hopes to welcome the program's all-time leading scorer with a victory.
I remember Austin Carr's recod setting performance against Oho Umiversity in the NCAA tourney. Unlike Marshon Brooks performance the Irish won the game. Just think about how many career points AC could have had with a three point line.
Unfortunately, Ausin had graduated before I went to ND in the early 70's. But his repuataion and his presence were still there. Then there were Dwight Clay and Johh Shumate as our guys. Yet AC was never out of anybody's memories. He was a great ND player, and an inspiriation to all that followed.
Congratulations on the Ring of Honor, Austin. You deserve it.
He was pure poetry on the basketball court.
I may not be pretty, but I'm fast.....
POTW 1/31/11 - 2/6/11
Austin Carr followed by Adrian Dantley followed by Kelly Tripuka..we were spoiled in the 1970s folks.
My luck w/the Irish 20-6...GO IRISH!!!
What's the status of Scott playing tomorrow?
Hopefully its a great night for ND basketball with Carr in the house. lets get a W over Seton Hall!
Two time Poster of The Week, 2011 and 2013.
Wes Morgan posted on our board yesterday afternoon that Scott indicated he is "full go" tonight, prior to Friday's practice.
I think the only thing that made winters bearalbe in South Bend in the early 70's was the exciting basketball program, At the end of every game you would hear the announcer give the stats over the loudspeaker and he would build up to the finale with increasing excitement in his voice and finaly you would hear " high scorer for the Irish, high score for Notre Dame, with 37 points- Auuuuustin Caaaaaaaar" and the place would go wild. And I also remember that there was no three point play, no shot clock and you weren't allowed to walk with the ball or double dribble back then. I shudder to think what Austin would have done in a speeded up game with an extra step or two. And how many of his field goals would have been threes by today's rules!!!
these last few games plus the be playoff are critical for our seed
i project a number 3 seed in the regionals
