Media Update -- Rosiak and a gem in the ChiTrib

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to you all.....we hope you enjoy the holiday and time with family and friends.

On the basketball front, Todd Rosiak is back with his engaging weekly feature, Jump Shots. This week's offering is a good one, with reflections on the Duke win and some of MU's emerging talent. Click here to check it out.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING JERRY WAINWRIGHT!

In the Thanksgiving edition of the Chicago Tribune, Skip Myslenski dedicates another column to the Golden Eagles, --- his second this week. Myslenski notes that 'Marquette proceeds with guarded optimism'. Myslenski talked to Coach K about MU and here's what the Hall of Famer had to say:

"Their whole thing is set up for their perimeter," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski added. "So they have the green light, the freedom and the ability to use their athleticism. And they're strong. They're not just quick. They're strong, so they can take bumps, get into areas and make plays.

"Until you play against that quickness, you can't practice [against it]. We don't have that. You're playing against something you're seeing for the first time, so you're half a step too late. … Their guards are good rebounders too. In college, when you have a perimeter like that you can win big."
Call me silly, but these remarks read like a recruiting homerun for Tom Crean and his coaching staff!

I'm really appreciating your coverage of this great win. I am very optimistic about this season. I do believe that the Final Four is in Atlanta this year, which is where I live!

We are Marquette!
