Marquette is #1 in Conference USA

As reported by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel today, Marquette is the top school in Conference USA under the new academics rating system used by the NCAA. In fact, Marquette's score would be highest in the Big Ten too, including Northwestern. Congratulations to Marquette and thank you to Shot of Wisky for bringing this to my attention, always good of him to do so....especially in light of how some of the other schools in the state did in their perspective conferences.
