Marquette clinches Big East Tournament berth

With the overtime loss by Notre Dame last night at UCONN, Marquette has clinched a berth into the Big East Tournament at Madison Square Garden. Only 12 of the 16 teams make the tournament. At the beginning of the season there were many pundits that believed MU would not make it. The media picked Marquette to finish 12th in the league which meant they were the last team to make it to New York. With three games remaining, Marquette is currently tied in 5th place but holds the tiebreaker over Georgetown.

Congratulations to Marquette, the players and the coaching staff.

We will see you in New York.
