Former MU Players Stand Out in NBA Summer League

A number of former Marquette players are currently participating in the NBA Summer League, an annual event in Vegas where first and second-round draft picks are tossed into an arena of scrubs and told to put a ball in a hoop (and are also allowed to familiarize themselves with the Vegas lifestyle after these amateurish matches conclude). Unfortunately, most of these former Golden Eagles fall … Continue reading Former MU Players Stand Out in NBA Summer League

OFFSEASON SELF-MAILBAG

We’re going to try something new here in which I open fake reader emails and answer their burning (and also fake) questions. If you actually want to¬†ask a question, however, leave a comment below the article or tweet a screenshot of it (140 characters is never enough to include humorous references!) and tag us. You could technically send us an email too, but you’re more … Continue reading OFFSEASON SELF-MAILBAG

MARQUETTE DREAM TEAM CREATOR — 2000S/2010S EDITION

It’s a long, long offseason. Here are the ground rules: 1. We chose the five best players at each position from the 2000s and 2010s eras, since comparing¬†Dwyane Wade to Butch Lee and Darius Johnson-Odom to Glenn Anton Rivers and such wouldn’t be too fair. 2.

Reassessing Preseason Player Predictions

Marquette kicked off the last third of the season on Thursday with an 11-point victory over Providence. Four months ago, that seemed like quite the easy prediction. As for the fact that the win only boosted Marquette to 12-9, and 4-4 in the Big East? Or that two days later, Marquette got absolutely bulldozed by St. John’s to put them back under .500 in conference? … Continue reading Reassessing Preseason Player Predictions

Fixing Marquette’s Seemingly Unfixable Problems

If you follow the #mubb hashtag on Twitter, or maybe just happened to witness the 75-68 heart-breaking, self-imploding, brain-exploding loss to New Mexico, it’s more than likely you’ve got an idea of what us fans are going through at this moment. First off, it’s a fact that about 87% of Marquette fans didn’t sleep last night. And the 13% who did had recurring nightmares of … Continue reading Fixing Marquette’s Seemingly Unfixable Problems

Marquette vs. New Mexico Preview

It’s no secret this is a must-win game. Sitting at cringe-worthy 7-4, Marquette has so far lost every test they’ve faced this season, and the schedule from hereon out won’t help much in building their tournament resume. I mean, sure, playing Georgetown, Creighton and Villanova will definitely factor into our RPI, but as of now, it’s the W’s that are going to get us a … Continue reading Marquette vs. New Mexico Preview
