After N0. 8 Notre Dame’s 76-72 win over No. 4 Duke on Wednesday night, Jerian Grant did his best to make sure that Notre Dame students did not storm the floor:


You can even see, in the bottom right corner, one fan in a green shirt slam his hat in frustration after getting turned back.

Personally, I love the move. Everyone knows I’m against court storming when the players are still on the floor, but this is different. Court storms are supposed to happen when a team gets upset, when a top ten team loses a game they have no business losing.

Notre Dame was favored tonight. They are a top ten team playing a home game.

Grant made sure the crowd realized that. You don’t storm the floor when you expect to win.
