MILWAUKEE -- Trent Lockett glanced at the weather app on his phone Friday and saw two drastically different numbers.
The senior transfer from Arizona State still has Tempe, Ariz., set as a favorite on his weather app, and Friday's high there was 74 degrees. Meanwhile in Milwaukee, Lockett walked to the Al McGuire Center for practice in 4-degree weather with a wind chill near minus-20.
While his mind temporarily went back to the warm walks to class at Arizona State, the Minnesota native knew what he was getting into when he transferred to Marquette. Coming off back-to-back double-digit scoring games for the first time as a Golden Eagle, Lockett is using a new word to describe how he's beginning to feel 19 games into his time in Milwaukee: comfortable.
"I'm would definitely say I'm hitting my stride, especially with the team and the coaching staff," Lockett said. "Having basically half the season under my belt, I'm really feeling comfortable with my team and the surroundings."
