A Big Week Is Upon Us

After weeks of near-news and simulated game action, a week of legitimate milestones is finally upon us. On Thursday, the new-look Marquette Golden Eagles will take on the Michigan Tech Huskies at the Bradley Center in the exhibition opener. Steve Novak's younger brother Chris is a freshman forward for the Huskies. While MU fans have been treated to a few open scrimmages, it's about time to see real hoops on Al McGuire Court.

Also note that high school seniors can sign letters of intent starting on November 9. Earlier this fall, sharpshooter Lazar Hayward verbally committed to MU. MU also is pursuing combo guard David Cubillan and center Chas McFarland -- are there other possibilities as well? We might know more by the end of the week. The national signing period runs from November 9-16.
