Friday, Mike Brey coaches Notre Dame, a No. 2 seed, against Akron to open the NCAA tournament at Chicago's United Center. Despite an unheralded roster, Brey led Notre Dame to 26 wins and its seventh appearance in the tournament in his 11 seasons as coach. Last week, he was voted the Big East coach of the year.
"I could almost see steam coming out of (Brey's) ears," Kearney said. "There's a very fierce competitor inside. … There's the level of competitiveness that burns inside him to put out the best team he possibly can each night."
