What happened to the Michigan-Notre Dame basketball series?

Why have Michigan and Notre Dame's men's basketball team not played each other recently? I used to love watching those games with my friends that support Notre Dame, but I was kind of shocked when I realized that they haven't played in the last couple of years because it seemed like a good rivalry.

Same, I was actually wondering about this when watching Notre Dame vs. Syracuse. We have a murderous schedule anyways and my guess to the rivalry's end would be due to the fact that it was run by the friendship of Mike Brey and Tommy Amaker.

The ND series has never been on an annual basis. We've just kind of played them every now and then.

Incidentally, ND is the answer to an interesting UM hoops trivia question, circa early 1990s. Know what it is?

He replied with, "Notre Dame decided it wanted some competition," to which I replied, "Yeah, too bad Michigan beat ND the last 3 times they played."

Then I called him a bitch.
