After two days in The City, it's almost game time. The Notre Dame men's basketball team took to Madison Square Garden this morning for a shootaround as they prepare for tonight's 9 pm quarterfinal against South Florida.

Upon arrival at the Garden, the Irish took the famous freight elevator up to the court. They don't call it the World's Most Famous Arena for nothing. It's pretty amazing to think about the celebrated coaches, athletes, musicians and performers who have taken that same ride up to the court, locker rooms or backstage area.

Walking down the hallway towards the main floor, the walls are decorated with photos from some of the legendary games and performances that have passed through MSG over the years.

All-time greats such as The Rolling Stones, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Frank Sinatra, as well as some of this generation's most accomplished recording artists - Beyonce, Jay-Z and Coldplay, among others.

#2 seed Marquette was finishing up their walkthrough right before the Irish took the court, and as soon as they finished, Connecticut and Syracuse were arriving to get ready for their noon quarterfinal matchup.

The Irish returned to the hotel after the shootaround, but will head out to The Sports Club/LA later this afternoon for a final walkthrough.

Plenty more coming later today on Irish UNDerground. 9 hours until game time.

Sean McDonough, Bill Raftery and Jay Bilas will have the call (and the best view in the house) on ESPN.
