Notre Dame, DePaul to play in college basketball, but keep calm

Year 5 goalkeeper Dane Goodwin of Notre Dame was a new pilot the last time the Irishman played for another top-flight team in a secret brawl.

pssst. Hey you. Can you keep college basketball a secret?


One of the most famous competitions in men’s basketball history at Notre Dame returns to the Irish schedule to start the 2022-23 season. But the NCAA being the NCAA, she doesn’t want anyone to know about it. Or admit it was going to happen, and then it happened.

It will. Notre Dame will play DePaul.

Instead of playing in a second fair against a volatile but grateful opponent at the Purcell Pavilion, as is usually the case early in the year, Irish coach Mike Brie will take a different route. His show has only traveled once before – in October 2018.

That year, Notre Dame and Cincinnati met in Indianapolis for a “secret” altercation. This year, Notre Dame and DePaul will do the same on Sunday, October 23 at Winterst Arena in Chicago’s South End. What time it begins – or is supposed to begin – has not yet been determined.
