MARQUETTE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Marquette freshman G Haanif Cheatham cleared by NCAA

The Marquette Golden Eagles were at one point considered to be a championship contending team. Those years have come and gone, but they are trying to put together a team that can get them back to that stage. Last season, the Golden Eagles finished with a 13-19 record that included a dismal 4-14 record within Big East conference play. There is nowhere to go but up for the Marquette...

Marquette’s Wally Ellenson has a dunk for the ages

Marquette wing Wally Ellenson transferred to the Golden Eagles after seeing limited playing time at Minnesota, and a video of him dunking during an exhibition game in Italy is more than enough reason to give him extended minutes in the future.
