While the Marquette basketball teams trudges through finals week, I wanted to point out a few new links we've added on our right nav bar:
- We linked to these folks earlier in the week, but I highly recommend the new Big East Hoops Blog. Be sure to get there today -- the guys do a fine analysis of MU in their current post and note that ,"It’s hard for me to get a read of Marquette, but I think they’re in for a rocky year." Perhaps, but methinks its too early to write-off Marquette, this is still a good basketball team. The team's pressure defense, defense inside the arc, improved rebounding year to year, and ability to force turnvers are all positives. If shot distribution improves and the pace of play is heightened - who knows. Last year's team turned the corner once conference season began -- something few (any?) expected to see.
