The Sheriff is on patrol as Ulice continues to lead

Marquette's Marcus Jackson is profiled in this morning's Peoria Journal-Star. Jackson, a senior power forward, is enjoying a fine senior season for the Golden Eagles. A junior college transfer, The Sheriff decided on MU after the University of Georgia fired Jim Harrick. He's clearly MU's most consistent rebounder and defender down low. After battling injuries through most of his junior season, Marcus' production on the floor this season has been a pleasant surprise.

Proving there's more to life than hoops, Ulice Payne was selected as the newest member of the Board of Trustees at Northwestern Mutual Life today. Congrats to Ulice, a member of the 1977 National Championship team.
