Despite being a 6-5 guard/forward, Pat Connaughton is Notre Dame’s best shot blocker. The senior and part-time pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles had a huge game last night during the Fighting Irish’s dramatic 67-64 overtime win over Butler, as he recorded 7 points, 9 rebounds and 5 blocks. None of his blocks were bigger than this one, when he swatted away a three-point attempt by Butler’s Kellen Dunham at the end of regulation to send the game into OT. Here’s a video of the play from the stands, here it is from the on-air camera.
