The Marquette Trib says MU is one step closer.
Long-time MU detractor Yoni Cohen gives MU a shout-out in his lastest column, saying that "few expected Golden Eagles freshmen Dominic James and Jerel McNeal to routinely help lift Marquette past the nation's best."
The Courier-News (New Jersey) proclaims, Marquette's made its case for NCAAs.
"We've beaten UConn, played Villanova great with the exception of a couple minutes and have two high-ranked wins this week," Crean said following the Pittsburgh win Saturday. "When you look at all the criteria -- (winning) big games, going on the road and winning like we did early in the conference season, winning a (preseason)tournament like we did -- all those things are in our favor. But the most important thing is that we keep getting better."
