UND.com is debuting another of its new interactive features for the 2010-11 season, with its weekly Fighting Irish Fan Chats. Each Wednesday afternoon, UND.com will sit down for a live chat session with student-athletes, coaches and administrators making news in the world of Fighting Irish athletics. Fans are invited to join in and offer questions or comments for our guests, and if you can’t join us live, each chat will be archived so you can return to UND.com at your convenience and read what your favorite Notre Dame athletic personalities have to say on a variety of topics.
The Nov. 3 Fighting Irish Fan Chat featured women’s volleyball coach Debbie Brown and men’s basketball small forward Scott Martin.
It took two long years to come to fruition, but Martin finally made his Irish debut Monday night and did so in style, scoring 15 points to lead the Irish to an 85-52 exhibition victory over Marian University.
Martin, who saw his first action since the 2007-08 season after transferring from Purdue and then suffering a season-ending knee injury last year, was 6-of-10 from the floor including a 3-of-5 mark from beyond the arc.
The Irish wrap up their exhibition schedule with a home contest against Catholic University at 7:00 p.m. (ET) on Saturday, Nov. 6.
Notre Dame has captured three of its last four matches and clinched a berth into the BIG EAST Conference Tournament. The Irish stand 15-9 overall and 8-3 in the league. Notre Dame travels to Philadelphia to face Villanova at 7:00 p.m. (ET) on Friday, Nov. 5 before returning home to host No. 13 Northern Iowa at 2:00 p.m. (ET) on Sunday, Nov. 7.
