Pomp and Circumstance: Media Update

This morning I expected to share a variety of clips from yesterday's Big East Media Day when something else jumped to the top of the heap, something much more important and a great source of pride for any MU alum or fan.

Graduation is a proud badge of honor for Tom Crean and the Golden Eagles. The team media guide devotes several pages to the learning environment available for players at Marquette, and boasts graduating 50 of 52 players over the past 16 years.
That's 96% folks.

Bob Brainerd of OnMilwaukee.com evaluates MU's success in the classroom in an article that appears online today. The article is chock-full of player testimonials and examples of how MU's support infrastructure and the culture of the program pushes kids to succeed academically. The players in the MU program work hard, no doubt......and based on their own words today, they recognize and value the opportunity they've been presented.
