Three for two: Who's gonna be left out?

With Dr. Nicholas J. Contorno's classic pep band CD on repeat, the MU hoops version of musical chairs is on!!

Marquette is currently over-subcribed for scholarships in the 2007-2008 season and this high stakes game of chance has fallen to Trevor Mbakwe, Damian Saunders and Trend Blackledge.

Ring Out Ahoya!...Elvira.....The Final Countdown (repeat)

Round and round the players go, where they stop nobody knows!

But what we do know is that somebody won't be back this fall and in the meantime TC appears to be adept at keeping the concerned parties in the game for as long as possible.

Ring Out Ahoya!....Elvira.....The Final Countdown (repeat)

So, who's gonna be left standing along when the music stops and the chairs are taken? Who will take their eligibility somewhere else, at least for the time being?

  • Trend Blackledge -- suspeneded for academic reasons early in the spring 2007 semester and apparently still working things out in the classroom;
  • Damian Saunders -- Connecticut prep schooler with a recent legal issue;
  • Trevor Mbakwe -- the highest-ceiling player of these three, a PF from Minnesota who is apparently grappling with summer school to secure eligibility.
So, which player is left out? We'll know when the music stops.
