Marquette captures Cheese State hoops title

It wasn't pretty but a win is a win is a win. With Marquette's victory over UW-M on Thursday night they capture the unofficial Cheese State basketball title by defeating each of the other DI men's basketball programs. Earlier this season MU topped UW-Green Bay at the Bradley Center and knocked off top 10 UW-Madison at the Kohl Center.

The victory over the Panthers extends MU's all-time record against their neighbor to the east to 39-0. That dominance represents the second longest streak in NCAA history with only Syracuse's mastery of Colgate having reached a longer streak (45 games).

Merry Christmas to Buzz Williams, the team and to the Marquette faithful everywhere.
