MU earns first round bye to Big East Tournament!

MU's win today, coupled with USF's upset of Georgetown this evening, puts MU in a 3-way tie for 4th place in the Big East conference.

Marquette, Georgetown and Pittsburgh all finish with 10-6 records. But with it's victory over Georgetown and split over the Panthers, MU holds the tiebreaker.

Much more to follow this week leading up to the Big East Tournament. . . .
