The Golden Eagles are coming off their best season since the 2003 final four team. Many questioned if Buzz Williams could keep the program up after Tom Crean left. Williams has taken the Golden Eagles back to back sweet 16s. Marquette only lose 2 players off last year’s roster but those players combined to score 35.8 points per game. Williams rebuilds his program by transfer and recruits same will be said for this season.
The strength of this team lies in the backcourt. Running the point guard duties will be Junior Cadouga...
