Notre Dame men's basketball: Dragicevich heads to BC with love for Irish
But it might be some time before everything he experienced with the
Irish program leaves Dragicevich.
Even as he spent a lazy spring Saturday afternoon lounging at home in
Northbrook, Ill., where earlier in the day he finalized plans to
transfer to Boston College, Dragicevich’s comments kept coming back to
the two seasons he spent in South Bend.
He talked of helping the Irish win 22 games and go from seemingly
nowhere last season to a 13-5 record in the Big East. He mentioned how
special a run it was to help Notre Dame set the school record with
nine consecutive league wins, and how he’ll always remember how his
first two years ended with trips to the NCAA Tournament.
As Dragicevich fielded questions about cutting short his Notre Dame
career two seasons earlier than he had planned, he also kept using the
word “we” to describe all those experiences that surfaced last season.
“I was really all about us winning the whole year,” Dragicevich said.
“I got to be a part of a really special run. That’s something I’m so
proud of. There’s so much to appreciate.
“Notre Dame will always have a special place in my heart.”
