Battling for Jesuit Supremacy

The Marquette Golden Eagles return to action this afternoon as they host the University of San Francisco Dons at the Bradley Center. MU will look to bounce back from a humbling defeat on the road against the University of Wisconsin @ Madison last Saturday.

Thanks to the inept Urinal Sentinel, we'll continue to rely on GoMarquette.com for detailed information about MU's upcoming games. The Dons are 4-5 on the young season highlighted by an 18 point win over Texas Tech. Here's a bit about the Dons:

San Francisco is a balanced squad, with all five starters each accounting for 9.3 points per game or more. The starters have scored 577 of the team’s 658 points (87.7 percent) and San Francisco has some big wins under its belt, including a 90-72 win over Texas Tech.

"They have five guys on the floor who can score in bunches," Crean said. "They beat Texas Tech by 18, so everything we say to our team begins and ends with that. It's really hard to beat a Bobby Knight team with numbers like that."

Here's a look at the Dons' roster and schedule/results over on ESPN.
