Spiking the Kool-Aid

ESPN The Magazine says, "Don't count Marquette out just yet". Check it out right here.

Despite this loss, we still think Marquette has reason for hope. For one, UConn played one of their best offensive games in the last two years, and A.J. Price simply shot out of his mind. Not every week will Marquette run into such an opponent, and come the Madness, wouldn't have to stop a performance like that until a Saturday or Monday in April. More, the Marquette backcourt is still dynamic.

Need more Kool-Aid? Here's a nifty feature on McNeal and Acker.........backcourt mates since the 5th grade (more or less).

Need more? Signee Dwight Buycks scored 22 points leading his JUCO to a playoff victory.

2009 recruiting target Darius Smith was named first-team all public league in Chicago.

Luke Winn of CNNSI still has MU in his top 16
. And he's a fan of Steve Rushin. Thanks, Luke

Smiles all around.



Oh......and Dominic James is having surgery today. All the best for a speedy recovery, DJ.

"James-McNeal-Hayward backcourt"? What? Where's the love for Wesley?

My heart is still broken. Who is going to step up? I really think Butler has potential - I wish he'd shoot the ball more often. He contributed 11 pts I believe against UCONN - we could sure use those every game from here on out, right?

On a side note - We're a Catholic school - why isn't God protecting our players near tourney time?
