MUTV Sports continues Sweet 16 coverage

Todd Warner reports from Centercourt as the players react to students, faculty and fans cheering them on as they walk through campus. Marquette is embracing the underdog role once again as they have perennial college basketball powerhouses Kentucky, Ohio State and North Carolina in their region.

Brad Galli found a surprising but welcoming face at the Buzz Williams Radio Show Monday night. Current Minnesota Timberwolves forward Lazar Hayward decided to spend time during a three-day NBA schedule break to visit his former team as they prepare for the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.

Lazar Hayward, a first class leader. It's a pleasure listening to him talk. Marquette, we are so incredibly proud!

It's pretty classy of Lazar to stop by Marquette and spend so much time talking to MUTV. He was on the radio with Homer and Buzz yesterday as well. It really speaks volumes to the bond that Williams has with his players that NBA guys like Lazar and Wes are so involved and active after they graduate.
