MILWAUKEE -- It wasn't pretty the last time Marquette had a double bye into the quarterfinals of the Big East Tournament.
While the then-No.9 Golden Eagles did run into a Louisville catching fire on its way to the Final Four last season, they didn't handle the layoff well and turned the ball over 26 times in an 84-71 loss.
Searching for a way to learn from last year's experience, Marquette coach Buzz Williams is making a few adjustments to the travel schedule. Instead of leaving Monday and spending an extra day in New York City, the Golden Eagles will practice in Milwaukee on Tuesday and then fly out so the staff can watch the late games at Madison Square Garden.
"Last year we went a little too early because it was on spring break," Williams said. "I thought it was better for us to be together in New York instead of our kids living in the dorm by themselves. I'm not saying that's why we got beat, Louisville beat us from start to finish, but we'll try it a little different this year....
