Bookstore Basketball winner 2011 story NDLS players made their presence known in The Bookstore Basketball Tournament, which wrapped up Sunday May 1.

The winning team and No. 1 seed, “Saturdays in America,” featured three law students, including transfer student Brendan Bush, who told The Observer, “First thing basically when I told my dad I got accepted to transfer here, [he said], ‘You better get a good Bookstore team.’ So [winning the tournament is] a really good feeling and I don’t know if I can describe it," he said.

The Bookstore Basketball Tournament is the largest outdoor 5-on-5 tournament in the world. Nearly 700 teams comprised of students, faculty, and staff from Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s College, and Holy Cross College competed in this year’s tournament.
