Marquette Women’s Soccer Downed By Georgetown

The Golden Eagles ran into the Hoyas at the worst possible time & ended up with a 3-0 loss. The Marquette Golden Eagles fell 3-0 to the Georgetown Hoyas Thursday afternoon.

Marquette Volleyball Splits A Weekend Against Villanova and Georgetown

The Wildcats handed the Golden Eagles their first conference loss of the season. Well, crap. Just a little over a week after Marquette had assumed full and total control over the Big East standings, things are murky once again. Villanova handed MU their first conference loss of the season on Saturday afternoon, beating Marquette 3-2 (22-25, 25-15, 25-21, 20-25, 9-15). Marquette...

Darian Powell’s Golden Goal Pushes Marquette Women’s Soccer Past Xavier

Powell moves to 7th all-time with her 23rd career goal. No better way to cap off Marquette’s Senior Night than for 6th year senior Darian Powell to score the game-winning goal against Xavier in overtime. As the rain was coming down heavily on Valley Fields, Powell got on the end of a long-ball played into the box by Ryley Bugay and flicked it over the head of Xavier goalkeeper...

Marquette Men’s Soccer Snaps Scoreless Streak; Beats St. John’s

For the first time in three years, we got to see a goal — literally just any goal at all — between the Golden Eagles and the Red Storm. Connor Alba put together a textbook example of “right place, right time,” as he scored a golden goal for Marquette on Saturday night, lifting the Golden Eagles past St. John’s, 1-0. MU is now 2-8-2 on the season, but more importantly, 2-2-1 in Big...

What Does Devon Dotson To Kansas Mean For Marquette and Quentin Grimes?

The Jayhawks have one top 25 point guard in the fold now. Do they need or want a second one? The recruitment of Quentin Grimes continued to take a twist and a turn on Friday evening when Devon Dotson made a verbal commitment to Kansas. Dotson is a 6’2”, 180 lb. point guard from Charlotte, North Carolina. He currently ranks #24 in the country in the 247 Sports Composite system...

Marquette Women’s Soccer Preview: vs Xavier Musketeers

Wait...didn’t Marquette go on a 7-1 run to start the year? The Marquette Golden Eagles will host the Xavier Musketeers on Senior Night. Yes, they began this year’s campaign 7-1 but have since dropped four of the last seven games. Not exactly what the Golden Eagles had in mind after having a share of the Big East regular season title last year. That’s essentially out the window, but...

Marquette Men’s Soccer Preview: at St. John’s Red Storm

The Golden Eagles desperately need three points to stay alive for a conference tournament berth. We have reached the midway point of the Big East schedule. Every team has played four matches, so the Friday/Saturday matchdays with all 10 teams in action is the pivot point in the nine match league slate. There will be just four matches remaining for Marquette after Saturday evening...

Marquette Volleyball Preview: at Villanova Wildcats & at Georgetown Hoyas

The Golden Eagles will head East to take on the Wildcats and Hoyas after an incredible week in Big East play. As I sit here in the library procrastinating my studies for my midterm exam, the Marquette Golden Eagles are coming off an incredible week of volleyball. They absolutely destroyed then #12 Creighton and then took care of Providence the following day. The team is now receiving...

Quentin Grimes Talked About Marquette & His Recruiting Timeline

Vaguely interesting phrasing on a few things in an interview with Rivals, if you’re putting value on that kind of thing. USA Basketball hosted a Men’s Junior National Team camp over the weekend, and as you can guess, there were a ton of tippy-top high school players in attendance. A number of them were Marquette prospects, and that includes class of 2018 point guard Quentin Grimes...

Marquette Volleyball Is Picking Up AVCA Top 25 Votes Again

That’s what happens when you beat the #12 team in the country. After smashing Creighton in straight sets on Thursday and sliding past Providence in similar fashion on Friday, Marquette has now won eight straight matches and sits alone in first place in the Big East at 7-0. The news gets even better as, thanks to Creighton holding onto a #12 ranking last week when they visited...

Positions? Who Needs Them?

Nearly every player on Marquette this season can play more than one position.  Lets talk about what this will means for the team this year. It is no secret that basketball is moving away from traditional 1 through 5 positions and going towards a position-less game. Last year for Marquette Golden Eagles, especially later in the season once Andrew Rowsey and Markus Howard were starting...

Marquette Basketball Players as Star Wars Characters

In honor of the new Star Wars trailer, we decided to pair up each Golden Eagle with a character in the movie series. Inspired by the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi dropping on Monday night (haven’t seen it yet? It’s waiting for you at the bottom of the page!), I have decided to match up each Marquette basketball player with a Star Wars character. I have paired them up based...

History not on Marquette’s side in this game. The Providence Friars spoiled the party as the Marquette Golden Eagles were celebrating their 25th year by honoring their alumni.

Marquette Men’s Soccer Has To Settle For A Draw With Providence

The Golden Eagles leave with a point after scoring two second half goals. In a see-saw battle on Saturday afternoon, Marquette and Providence went to a 2-2 draw after neither team managed a golden goal in a rain-soaked overtime session.

Marquette Madness 2017: A Recap

Madness was last night and some pretty interesting things went down.  Last night I went the Al McGuire center expecting to see some pretty athletic stuff and lots of gimmicks hyping up the Marquette Golden Eagles men's and women's basketball teams. I can say that I was not disappointed on either front. Especially when the hyping up activities and athletic feats intersected as men...

Marquette Volleyball Stays On Top With Sweep Of Providence

The Golden Eagles kept their winning streak alive by beating the Friars in straight sets. Volleyball is a weird sport sometimes. Sometimes you go out and impose your will against the #12 team in the country and beat them in a fairly impressive fashion, much like Marquette did against Creighton on Thursday night. Sometimes you have a back and forth match with a team that you should...

Marquette Men’s Soccer Preview: vs Providence Friars

The Golden Eagles are presented with a chance to make some noise in the Big East standings. Ok. So. For the first time in Louis Bennett’s tenure as head coach of the Marquette Golden Eagles men’s soccer team, they failed to win a non-conference match this season. That is probably not great. That’s in the past, though. To the future now, where Marquette has six more Big East matches...
