With Selection Sunday little more than a month away (March 16), the Marquette basketball (13-10, 5-5) team faces an uphill battle.
Coming off a 2012-2013 season that saw the Golden Eagles win a share of the Big East title, en route to an Elite Eight appearance, expectations were understandably high. Marquette was picked in preseason...

I attempt to explain where they go from here. Feel free to send me your questions for next week’s mailbag at my Twitter account @KapN93. Also, check out my radio show this Wednesday from 11...
This past Saturday afternoon, Marquette basketball did what they have done all season. Against a highly ranked Villanova team, the Golden Eagles were able to play the Wildcats tight. Another clutch performance by Todd Mayo down the stretch forced overtime and a chance for the Golden Eagles to garner their first quality win of the year. Once again, in a testament to what this season...
Todd Mayo came up clutch again for Marquette, this time sending a game into overtime.
But the Golden Eagles couldn't capitalize on the junior guard's late heroics.
