16 FEBRUARY 2017 BLUE & GOLD ILLUSTRATED UNDER THE DOME THE BIG PICTURE BROTHERLY LOVE Star junior point guard Matt Farrell and older brother Bo, a first lieutenant who had been deployed in Afghanistan, had a surprise meeting after Notre Dame's 77‑62 win versus Colgate Dec. 19. Farrell was in tears when Bo sent a Christmas video mes‑ sage on the video scoreboard — with Matt not expecting to see him until February. Instead, Bo appeared in person from a locker room shortly after the video. The reunion became a popular rerun broadcast nationally. PHOTO COURTESY FIGHTING IRISH MEDIA
