ESPN’s Dan Murphy with a good look at the personal drive that has powered Notre Dame’s Bonzie Colson to be one of the country’s best players. I remember when Colson was in high school, people were unsure of what to make of this undersized, but ultra-productive post player when projecting him for the next level. Colson found the perfect fit in Brey’s motion offense and has worked his tail off to improve.
Notre Dame under Brey has been a haven for guys who don’t quite fit the mold thanks mostly to a flexible offense that allows those players to thrive with versatility and a natural ability to get to the basket. It’s a big part of the reason why Colson landed in South Bend. “I guess we’re famous for it,” Brey said. “What’s he play? I don’t know what he plays. I think we always call them basketball players.”
