DeMatha Legend Adrian Dantley Meets DJ Harvey

November 23, 2016

“The best thing I ever did was to go to this school.” – Adrian Dantley, on DeMatha

Watch the NBA video embedded in the link above.  Darren Harvey was the lucky young man that got to size himself up next to a Hall of Fame inductee.  The two not only have DeMatha in common, but also Notre Dame.  Darren “DJ” Harvey is the leader of the DeMatha Stags basketball team in 2017 and he committed to play for Notre Dame in the Fall.  I hope that this DeMatha legend sighting is a sign that bodes well for the team this year.

Follow me.  There is more basketball coverage to come and I can see more Marc Stern videos in your future.  Shout-outs to Capitol Hoops for the DJ Harvey recruiting video.

Check out the NBA career stats of Adrian Dantley in Basketball Reference here but please understand that he is an individual that exudes 100% class.  This is deeper than basketball but it should suffice to say that DeMatha and the University of Notre Dame have a long history.  Anyway, give your boy a plus one (+1) if you can.  Also feel free to share and like this article in order to show these DeMatha Stags some love.

Paris St. Patrick’s Day Edition: Notre Dame

March 17, 2015

I hope you are out there being responsible and all that good stuff.  Just so you know, I’m wearing green.  Oh you already knew that it was St. Patrick’s Day just like you knew that the DeMatha Stags won the ACIT.  You probably also knew that the Notre Dame basketball team (in Indiana) won the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament Championship later on that night.  Did broadcasters mention that Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey graduated from DeMatha in 1971 1977?  Did they mention that Notre Dame has a Player of the Year candidate and ACC Tournament MVP winner by the name of Jerian Grant that graduated from DeMatha in 2010?

A very cute baby at Notre Dame.

There will be more on that stuff at a later date.  We should all spend more time in our lives talking about the saints that we actually met.  (Anyway, shout out to my Irish-DeMatha-Music homey Coleman Mellett who is no longer with us.)  My wife tells me that Semana Santa or Saints Week is about to pop-off in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain very soon, so I know at least one fat baby boy that has some traveling to do.  I’m wishing all of us out here safe travels and may God’s grace and the luck of Irish be with ye!
