CBK: #5 Louisville at Notre Dame

14 February 2009 No Comment

Thursday afternoon, the Ultimate Sports Wife and I drove to South Bend, IN to attend my first basketball game at the University of Notre Dame.

Pre Game Dining
We arrived in South Bend and were disappointed with the restaurant selection until we got to downtown which had much better options. We ate at Buffalo Wild Wings which is the Ultimate Sports Wife’s preferred dining restaurant in suburban towns.

Obtaining Tickets
Parking was free for the game. We did not see any scalpers or fans with extra tickets as we approached the arena. Thus, I walked to the box office to see if tickets were available. Tickets were available so we bought two bleacher seats for $13 each.

The Game
Notre Dame crushed #5 Louisville 90-57. Notre Dame took an 11-4 lead in the first 5 minutes, were ahead by 18 points at halftime and never looked back after that. The 33-point win is the largest in history versus a league opponent.

After the game we drove back to Chicago. The drive took less than two hours which is similar to driving to Milwaukee from Chicago.
