    NOTRE DAME, Ind. - University of Notre Dame men's basketball coach Mike Brey has been selected to Northwestern State University's "Fab 50" All-Century Team honoring the program's top players in program history.

    Northwestern State University, formally know as Northwestern Louisiana State, is a four-year institution located in Natchitoches, La. and currently competes in the Southland Conference.

    Brey was a major component to the transition of the Demon basketball program as he joined the team his freshman year (1977), while Northwestern was just in its second-season of Division I basketball.

    Brey was one of 14 recipients selected to the Modern Era's "Fab 50" team that finished their seasons during the 1980's era. The 100-member All-Century Team is comprised of the two 50-man rosters. The "Fantastic 50" honors those student -athletes that participated from the team's first recorded season (1912-13) through the 1975-76 season. The "Fab 50" commemorates players after the '75-'76 season. Players from the 2012-13 team were not eligible for consideration.

    A blue-ribbon panel of media, coaches, former players and longtime observers of the Northwestern State University program made selections for the honor.

    The standout guard spent three year's (`77-`80) as a member of the Demon's basketball program before transferring to George Washington his senior season.

    Brey earned the honor after compiling a total of 311 assists through his three-year stint with the Demons. The assist total currently places him No. 8 on the school's all-time career assist list. The two-year starter averaged 4.3 assists per game and led the Demon's his sophomore year with 180 assists, standing as the fifth-best single-season total in program history.

    The complete 100-man team will be honored at the Demons' final home game of the season on Saturday, March 9.
