Catching up on a few things

OK, so we took a collective break on the blog.....thanks for bearing with us and we hope you are all enjoying the Christmas season. Here are few items of note --

2010 signee Jamail Jones had a great tournament at the City of Palms Classic in Fort Myers recently. ESPN said the 6'6" Jones "understands how to spot up from his teammates' dribble drives or free himself by reading his defender, using the screen and cutting to open spots on the floor". One of the guys on MUScoop saw Jones and had this to offer. Flagrant Fouls evaluated Jones' fine play as well.

Fellow 2010 signee Vander Blue dominated late in Madison Memorial's 56-43 win over Milwaukee King. Blue scored 22 points including 10 in the final period to seal the win. According to Slam Magazine, Blue was the most outstanding prospect at the recent Converse/Eastbay Classic held at the Al McGuire Center. The Journal-Sentinel adds a bit more here.

By the way, MU's upcoming game against Presbyterian on December 27th will not include a television broadcast. To view the game, click on GoMarquette -- they'll stream the game live on the interwebs. Tipoff is scheduled for 1pm on Sunday. Last time out the Warriors shellacked the North Florida Ospreys 78-51.

Look for lineup changes for MU. Rosiak reports that Buzz is likely to move away from starting Acker and Cubillan in the backcourt when BIG EAST play begins. Finally.

The guys over at LostLetterman.com sent along a terrific podcast and interview with former Marquette Warriors star, Butch Lee. Lee talks about his new life down in Puerto Rico playing basketball and owning his own sign business. Great stuff, fellas.

Our incoming class is simply incredible, and Buzz isn't done...if we land a couple bigs, we're going to contend for a national title! I can't wait for next year already...

Merry Christmas Cracked Sidewalks. Thank you for setting the bar high, your excellence is consistent with everything Marquette....and I enjoy your blog every day.
