The Notre Dame basketball program under the direction of long-time head coach Gary Palladino and recently under leadership and vision of Jason Shea ‘97 has perennial been a state tournament qualifier and more than competitive program within the state of Connecticut.
In its program history, the Green Knights have reached the state championship game three times (1960, 1998, and 2003). Ten times in the last 11 seasons, Notre Dame has won more than 10 games and reached the quarterfinal round of the state tournament three times during that span. As recently as the 2016-17 season, Notre Dame completed a perfect regular season, climbing to the #1 ranking in the state of Connecticut for the first time in school history. Traditionally sending players to the collegiate level, Notre Dame basketball enjoys a home court advantage playing before jam-packed crowds in cozy Alumni Hall. Notre Dame competes in the ultra-competitive Southern Connecticut Conference, a league comprised of 23 schools in the greater-New Haven area that has won over 400 state championships since the league’s inception in 1994.
