You know when watching the Golden Eagles play this season that you're going to see Jerel McNeal, Wesley Matthews and Dominic James make great plays.But who are Pat Hazel and Jimmy Butler?Most of the non-conference games this season have been shown on the Time Warner Channel, so my Direct TV loving household is woefully behind on MU bball. I had no idea who these guys are, but I was pretty impresse...

I didn't get to watch the game since I was at the hockey game in Madison. We listened to the second half in the car. UW led most of the game, though only by a few points at a time. Marquette managed to keep it close and Jerel McNeal was the biggest factor in this game. Sitting just one minute of the 40 played, McNeal was 10-18 with 26 points and seven rebounds. Nineteen of those points came af...

We won't talk about Marquette's embarrassing loss to Dayton -Instead, let's focus on Wisconsin's last-second win over Virginia Tech in the Big Ten/ACC Shootout. Despite leading most of the game, the Badgers needed a last-second shot from Trevon Hughes to secure the win. UW started strong, building their lead to as much as 23-12 at times in the first half. The VT big man (who's name currently escap...

The early chill of pre-winter was just the perfect shade of bitter for an opening night of a Chekov play. It was to be the first of four shows on an excessively busy weekend, which might’ve been perfect for Chekov as well. The Helfaer Theatre on the campus of Marquette University was filled with a more generous mix of different demographics than one might expect from a college show. The theatre ...

It took me literal weeks to get out of baseball mode and into football mode. Now, before I could blink, it's time to think college hockey and college hoops. We were at Saturday night's UW men's hockey game and I've got lots to share about that, so that's coming up. In the meantime, some quick hits on Marquette basketball and, once I do my research, some more in-depth stuff to come... Midn...
