Noteworthy Items

We hope everybody is enjoying a safe and restful Memorial Day Weekend. Here are a couple of noteworthy items about MU and the Big East:

- - Andy Katz reports that the expanded Big East is in great shape. The net of it: the league is sound and rolling in the dough (thanks to a huge TV contract and blowout ratings). Also, expect an 18 game conference schedule for 2006-2007.

- - Crean opines on Dwyane Wade in today's column by Rick Bozich of the Louisville Courier-Journal. Bozich also admits that is favorite NBA player is Dwyane Wade -- "Then there is my favorite NBA player, the guy I cannot take my eyes off -- Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat." Good morning, Rick Pitino!

- - Marquette University ended the 2005-2006 season ranked 18th overall in attendance averaging 13,998 per game. Marquette was third overall for private schools and third in Big East attendance as well. Here is the link to the NCAA's .pdf on attendance.
