NOTRE DAME, Ind. - University of Notre Dame sophomore Pat Connaughton (Arlington, Mass.) was named to the 2013 BIG EAST Championship All-Tournament Team. The announcement was made on Saturday evening (March 16) following the league's title game.

Connaughton led the Irish in scoring during Notre Dame's three-game run through the BIG EAST Championship as he averaged 16.0 points and 4.3 rebounds. He averaged 36.0 minutes per game in the three games while shooting 61.5 percent (16-26) from the field and .625 (15-24) from three-point range.

In Notre Dame's 69-61 victory over Rutgers in its opening game of the BIG EAST Championship, Connaughton netted a game-high 21 points as he connected on seven-of-10 shots from the field and was six-of-eight from three-point range. The six three-point field goals were a season best and one shy of his career high. The following night against Marquette in the 73-65 quarterfinal win, the 6-5, 212-pound forward once again led all scorers as he finished with 18 points on six-for-10 shooting from three-point range. In Notre Dame's 69-57 semifinal loss to Louisville, Connaughton finished with nine points and eight rebounds as once again he scored all of his points from three-point range on three-of-six shooting from the field.

Connaughton becomes the fifth Irish player to earn BIG EAST All-Tournament Team honors. Other honorees have been Chris Thomas (2002), Russell Carter (2007), Tory Jackson (2010) and Scott Martin (2011).
