Fallout begins from Buzz Williams leaving Marquette; questions are plentiful

“I don’t get it.” That’s been my baffled reaction since it was announced on Friday that Buzz Williams was leaving Marquette to become the head coach at Virginia Tech. So many questions and to this point outside of never-ending speculation on Twitter; so little answers.  We do know that 2014 top 100 recruit Sandy Cohen has been released from his National Letter of Intent...

Marquette suffers yet another oh-so-close setback

MILWAUKEE -- Hunched over, leaning against the scorer's table, Jamil Wilson had his hand over his face. The moment hit him and the entire Marquette roster like a ton of bricks.
