Notre Dame basketball player’s brother comes home from Afghanistan, surprises him after game

Notre Dame guard Matt Farrell got the surprise of a lifetime on Monday.

The junior from Bridgewater, N.J. was shown a message from his brother, Bo, on the scoreboard after the Irish’s game against Colgate. Bo was serving in Afghanistan and was supposed to return in February, but showed up and surprised Matt months early.

It’ll give you chills.

The Irish improved to 10–2 with a 77–62 win, and Farrell pitched in 13 points.
