Mike Brey proved once again this past season that he could lead Notre Dame to success when given the right collection of talent. By advancing out of the First Four of the NCAA Tournament and then making the round of 32, Brey made the Irish one of the feel-good stories in the early part of March Madness. But what about the Irish going forward?

Eamonn Brennan of The Athletic sought to answer that question posed by a reader as part of a mailbag. The full version only is available to subscribers, but here is what Brennan thinks about Brey:

“It would appear Brey is brewing up a refined version of what he is basically always trying to brew up: an experienced team with at least four (and ideally five) shooters on the floor, punctuated, if possible, by NBA potential. Blake Wesley is gone, sure, but bringing in combo guard JJ Starling is a coup, particularly because Starling can just vibe while the rest of a very experienced team coming off an excellent postseason handles the rest. Notre Dame will probably be very good on the offensive end, just OK on the defensive end, fun to watch, and not very much fun to play.”

If that’s what we have to look forward to beginning in November, reserve your seats at Purcell Pavilion now. The good times indeed have returned to the Irish.
