Irish Roll To 87-56 Win Over St. Francis In Exhibition Opener

Bonzie Colson leads the Notre Dame with 12 points.

2016-17 OUTLOOK:

“I’m excited that Elijah has remained healthy all summer. There is a physicality about him and he is ready to play in the ACC. He has a great basketball I.Q. and feel for the game. He follows the mold of the big guys we have had in our program who know how to play, are good with the ball and know how to pass. With his physicality and the unknowns we have on the front line with what we have graduated, he will be right in the mix for playing time.”
- Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey
