Marquette Hosts Delaware State


Of course I might have thought the same thing before Saturday's game against North Dakota State. MU enters the game at 8-1 while the Hornets are a less threatening 2-6. Note however that the Hornets return all five starters from last year's squad -- a team that lost to MU 60-48. MU led by as many as 23 points in the second half of the game after leading by 14 at the break.

Here is the AP preview of tonight's tilt.

Here is the Appleton Post-Crescent preview of tonigh's game.

Here is Rosiak's preview.....a particularly good one.

Rosiak examines who's hot and who is not here. And Todd notes that MU could "become the lone team in college basketball to sport "Brand Wade" uniforms and shoes." Very cool.

Ideally tonight's action is merely a tuneup for the game against the University of Wisconsin-Madison game on Saturday.

BTW, here's a nice article on Marquette Hoops about Ousmane Barro's terrific start to the 06-07 season.
