On Tuesday night, No. 9 Notre Dame were upset by Ball State. Now, they are in bounce back mode as they head to Delaware this weekend.

Bonzie Colson said,"Continue to get back to work and get better. It's pretty simple. That's what we have to do. We're excited to get back in the gym and get better and figure out what we need to do to get better as well."

On Saturday the Irish will face former longtime assistant, Martin Inglesby. Head Coach Mike Brey said the best way to avoid the distractions of facing a friend, is to focus on what this game means, for his team.

Brey said, "We're preparing like its an ACC game here and trying to focus on all that and, maybe the best frame of mind to be inn is we're trying to bounce back after a loss. That may cut out a lot of - I think that's cut out a lot of distractions for me this week because we had a tough one the other night and we're trying to find some rhythm."

The Irish will play their final non-conference game of the season at Bob Carpenter Center on Saturday, December 9, 2017, 7:00 p.m. ET against the Blue Hens.
