Villa Maria graduate Kayla McBride is now a senior at Notre Dame and is heading into her final basketball season with the Fighting Irish.
With All-American point guard Skylar Diggins now in the WNBA, Notre Dame figures to turn to McBride more than ever for leadership.
The 5-foot 11-inch guard earned All-America status last season while helping the Irish advance to the NCAA Final Four for the third straight season.
McBride was prominently featured today in the espn.go.com season preview for the Irish.
Louisville coach Jeff Walz had some of the most interesting quotes in the story. He wasn’t sure which year McBride was in school, according to the story, and when told she was a senior, he said, “Good, I’m really glad that she’s going to play her last year in the ACC. And then when we join it next year, I won’t have to play against her.”
