NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The Notre Dame men's and women's basketball teams are holding their annual Media Day activities on Thursday afternoon inside Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. In addition to press conferences with head coaches Mike Brey and Muffet McGraw, the players and staff for both teams are available for interviews with members of the media. What's more, the men's basketball team is taking its 2012-13 team photo (the women took theirs last month), as well as a handful of group photos, with Mike Bennett and his talented crew from Lighthouse Imaging in Mishawaka, Ind.
