To say that there was optimism surrounding Marquette basketball going into the 2013-2014 season would be an understatement. Up in Milwaukee, all people were talking about was how Marquette would dominate in their first year in the transformed Big East. The question was not whether the Golden Eagles...
MILWAUKEE -- Marquette may not be a program used to being 8-6 when the new year rolls around, but the Golden Eagles are certainly used to overcoming adversity when the odds are stacked against them.
Forget about being the conference favorites or building on an Elite Eight appearance, Marquette is the underdog yet again. But this time the Golden Eagles are going to have to turn things...

To say that the Marquette basketball team played numerous cupcake games to start the season would be an understatement. No disrespect to Cal State Fullerton, Grambling State, or IUPUI, but let’s just say those teams will not help anybody’s RPI.
It is not uncommon for a major conference team like Marquette...
MILWAUKEE -- Having not yet played this season due to a preseason leg injury, Marquette freshman guard Duane Wilson will redshirt the 2013-14 season.
Wilson suffered a stress fracture in his left leg just prior to the start of the season and was cleared to return to practice on a limited basis Dec. 4. He was able to gradually increase his time on the playing court and even suited...

MILWAUKEE -- Anything done against Grambling State has to betaken with a grain of salt, but Marquette's heralded freshman class looked awhole lot better in game number two.After combining for three points in the opener against Southern,the trio of Deonte Burton, Jajuan Johnson and John Dawson produced 28 points,10 rebounds, eight assists and three steals in Tuesday night'...
Derrick Wilson was thrust into the spotlight before preseason practice even started.
Want to be the point guard at No. 17 Marquette? Get used to the pressure.

MILWAUKEE -- The grin on Jajuan Johnson's face filled the Al McGuire Center. He could have just been happy to be at his first media day as a college basketball player, but it's hard to imagine the freshman guard didn't hear the praise his head coach gave him just minutes earlier.
Marquette coach Buzz Williams didn't need much time to think after being asked which...
MILWAUKEE -- Under Buzz Williams, Marquette University has watched eight players find their way on an NBA roster at one point or another. The vast majority, if not all, had to overcome long odds or physical limitations to make it to the next level.
