Warriors look to Ring Out Ahoya on the Hoyas

UPDATED - NOTE NEW ALUMNI PRE-GAME INFO BELOW

Buzz Williams was all smiles after yesterday's triumph over the Villanova Wildcats. With the win his Warriors earned the right to play Friday night basketball at MSG in the Big East Tournament.

Raise your hand if you saw this coming back in October.

.....(crickets)......

The Warriors' remarkable season (22-10, 11-7) continues tonight at the World's Most Famous Arena when they hit the court to take on the Georgetown Hoyas (22-9, 10-8). Tonight's Jesuit Jam is a revenge game for the Washington, D.C-based disciples of St. Ignatius Loyola, who fell to Father Jacques Marquette's crew 62-59 in January.

Tipoff is scheduled for 6pm Marquette Standard Time on ESPN.

Media Roundup

A reminder to NYC-area Marquette fans --the university is hosting pre and post-game parties at Stout NYC, 133 W 33rd St, downstairs in Stout Cellar.

Fire up Marquette!

My inner Jim Rome is coming out, that win was PHENOMENAL! Need to keep our 3pt % high and make our free throws. Lazar's last 2 free throws last night were heart stoppers. Proud of these guys. But, I hold our program to a high standard and expect them to perform year in and year out.
