"My rule was I wouldn't recruit a kid if he had grass in front of his house.
That's not my world. My world was a cracked sidewalk." —Al McGuire

Friday Media Update


Thanks to everyone that helped up break the stretch goal of nearly $3,300 to support Al's Run. Because of your generosity, we were able to exceed last year's total, mostly due to some very kind donations. There's still time if you haven't, so please donate to Al's Run now. Every little bit counts.

A few days ago, Marquette released some details about Marquette Madness. It'll be on Friday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. in the Al McGuire Center. Doors will open at approximately 6:45 p.m. MUTV Sports will stream the entire event.

Earlier this week MU released another episode of Marquette basketball revealed. This one looks at Buzz on the road, and the role key people play behind the scenes.

Buzz did an interview with MSG's Jon Rothstein, who posted the responses on his Twitter feed. Or... you could also read the summary in the MUScoop thread or Jon's article that he posted this morning. Buzz also did a radio interview with Milwaukee radio's Bob and Brian (click here and search for Buzz Williams). Buzz has been busy - he was also interviewed yesterday on the WSSP afternoon show.

Check out Villanova By The Numbers for their great preview of Marquette. It's fair, well researched, and in-depth. And oh so accurate -- "Blue is a consensus Top 50 recruit, who was slated to go to Wisconsin before Badger fans changed his mind." Greycat is doing a full preview for each team in the BE. They're all good.

Super recruit Quincy Miller indicated yesterday that MU remains on his list for now. Full details in the article he wrote in SLAM. Of course, according to Zagoria, Miller cut his list down to four and Marquette isn't on it. Seriously, Miller committing to MU is a pipe dream.

Finally, take a look at this mini-documentary about Wesley Matthews. , Wesley had 20 points two nights ago, and 21 points last night. Good start by Wesley.
