Mike Brey and his Fighting Irish squad are ready to take on the big, bad ACC in 2013. For Mike Brey, that will mean he gets to regularly face off against his former mentor at Duke, the legendary Mike Krzyzewski. Coach K, if you recall, got under Brey’s skin a few months ago when Notre Dame officially moved to the ACC, but the two have a very good relationship, and are looking forward to butting heads on the court:

It’s true — just ask Tommy Amaker — Krzyzewski likes to beat his disciples, and would certainly love to welcome Mike Brey to the conference the hard way. The Blue Devils will be the first ACC opponent for the Irish as members of the new-look conference. The teams will square off on January 4th at Purcell Pavilion in South Bend.
