Knight Plays In ACC Today
For Maine's Tom Knight, his next game in a Notre Dame uniform could be his last one. The former Dirigo HS standout is a fifth year player for the Irish and the ACC tournament begins this afternoon at 1pm.
Notre Dame is seeded #13 and will meet #12 Wake Forest. The winner gets #5 Pitt in the quarterfinal round of the ACC Tourney.
Knight and his Irish team enter the post season with a 15-16 record and that means Notre Dame will have to win the ACC tournament to make it to the NCAA Big Dance.
In 26 games this season, Knight is averaging four points and four rebounds a game. He plays about 14 minutes a game.
Back in his Dirigo High School days, Knight played for coach Gavin Kane and finished with over 1,300 points and was named Mr. Basketball in 2009.
