Sunday afternoon’s game marked the first time in 23 years that Mike Brey has ever been thrown out from a game.
The ejections did not concern the Irish one bit, as they handled the Terriers with ease towards the end. But, what should concern the Irish is the fact that the bench continued to under perform, even against an opponent like St. Francis.
