Notre Dame hockey’s regular-season average attendance hit its lowest point since the opening of the Compton Family Ice Arena in October 2011.
Despite the low turnout, the program is having one of its most successful seasons in years. The fourth-seeded Irish topped both Minnesota and second-seeded UMass Lowell to head to the Frozen Four this weekend for the first time since 2011 and the third time in program history.

Disparities in Irish Men’s Basketball Scoring
On a 13-member team, four Notre Dame men’s basketball players scored 2,140 of the season’s 2,783 points:
- Bonzie Colson (639)
- V.J. Beachem (522)
- Matt Farrell (506)
- Steve Vasturi (473)
Four players scored nearly 78 percent of the team’s points, so the key to next year’s success could be a fifth starter who can score in the 400-point range. Temple Gibbs, this year’s fifth starter, scored 168. — Erin McAuliffe
