Quick media roundup

Todd Rosiak spoke with Tom Crean about the MU schedule in his article this morning. Coach Crean is understandably pleased with the national exposure for the Big East and his squad:

The Golden Eagles will play eight conference games on national TV, including four straight to close out the regular season. The highlight will be the finale on March 3 when they play host to Pittsburgh as the nightcap to "ESPN Gameday," the network's studio show, which will begin broadcasting live from the Bradley Center at 10 a.m.

"I think it speaks volumes about the league, it speaks volumes about what they feel our atmosphere is like," Crean said. "That's a tribute to the students, the fans, the way they have done so many things to make playing at Marquette such a great experience. But there's no way this would have happened without the leadership of the Milwaukee Bucks and especially Sen. (Herb) Kohl clearing the way for us to have an opportunity to do this."
