Notre Dame senior forward Bonzie Colson will make his return Wednesday night when he starts for the Irish against Pittsburgh, head coach Mike Brey told ZAGSBLOG.
ESPN’s Dick Vitale previously reported the news on air.
Colson has been out since early January with a left foot fracture suffered in practice. Brey previously projected Colson would return “end of Febrary/ March 1st.”
“Realistically if we get him back we’d have him back for Brooklyn,” Brey said recently, referring to the ACC Tournament, which starts next week in Brooklyn. “And maybe we’ll have the team we had in Maui ready to go in Brooklyn.”
The preseason ACC Player of the Year, Colson was averaging 21.4 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.4 blocks, and 2.0 steals when he went down.
The Irish are 17-12, 7-9 ACC.
