It didn't matter that Steve Vasturia was directly behind him, Matt Farrell found the shooter anyway with a nice between the legs pass for the three-pointer.

2016-17 OUTLOOK:

“Matt is going to be such a key guy for us. He stayed confident through the summer and embraced the starting point guard role. He can lead and he needs to talk more. The biggest improvement he needs is that when he has an open shot he can’t turn it down. He is a great shooter and we want him taking a shot when he has it.”
- Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey
