NOTRE DAME, Ind. – University of Notre Dame men’s basketball fans are invited to celebrate the success of the 2014-15 Irish squad at the fourth annual An Evening With Notre Dame Basketball set to take place on Monday, April 13 beginning at 5 p.m. This year’s event once again will be presented by Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center.

Once again, fans will enjoy an all-access and behind-the-scenes look into the Irish basketball program and have the opportunity to pay tribute to the players and members of the coaching staff that have made this Fighting Irish basketball campaign so memorable. The evening also offers the chance to honor one final time seniors Pat Connaughton and Jerian Grant for their accomplishments over the past four seasons.

This special evening for fans of all ages has proven to be quite popular the last three years as it offers a special and unique look into the Fighting Irish program as well as behind-the-scenes access to many of the team’s facilities and Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. The affair has been a change in format from the postseason banquet events of seasons past as it now offers a casual and intimate setting where those in attendance have the opportunity to spend time with their favorite Irish players as well as have their questions answered by team members and the coaching staff.

Among the facilities included in the all-access tour for fans are the men’s basketball locker room, team room, coaches’ offices, the auditorium where film sessions and postgame news conferences are held. Coaches and players will be stationed at these various locations and fans will have the opportunity to pose for pictures as well as get autographs.

A reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres will be available in Club Naimoli beginning at 5 p.m., along with a silent auction of unique items. Proceeds from the event will benefit the scholarship fund of the Notre Dame Club of St. Joseph Valley. At 7 p.m., the Awards Program will take place in Heritage Hall. During the awards program, fans will have the opportunity to hear from Coach Brey and select members of the Irish squad as well as watch video tributes to the team highlighting the 2014-15 season.

Tickets are $40 for adults and $15 for fans under 18 years and can be purchased by calling the Notre Dame Ticket Office at 574-631-7356 or by stopping by the ticket office at Gate 9 of Purcell Pavilion. Tickets can also be purchased at und.com/tickets.
