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.Call me silly, but these remarks read like a recruiting homerun for Tom Crean and his coaching staff!
"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."
