Marquette should be in position to dance & is taking on a tough schedule.

Per Rothstein

In addition to 18 Big East games, Marquette will play two tilts in the Preseason NIT along with Kansas, Tennessee, and Louisville; all three of those teams are currently ranked in the FRS Sports Preseason Top 25 and Kansas and Tennessee is ranked in the top six. Steve Wojciechowski’s squad also will play a road game against a Big Ten team in the Gavitt Games and host both Wisconsin and Kansas State in December; the Wildcats are currently ranked 13th in the FRS Sports Preseason Top 25 and return the majority of their nucleus from last year’s team that reached the Elite Eight.

That’s 23 high major games and if the Golden Eagles win their fair share, they won’t just be playing for a spot in the 2019 NCAA Tournament; they’ll be playing for a high seed in the 2019 NCAA Tournament.

This is one of the Big East’s more unique teams entering next season with the return of two all-league players in Markus Howard and Sam Hauser along with the additions of three potentially key front court pieces in Nebraska transfer Ed Morrow, Brendan Bailey, and Joey Hauser — the younger brother of Sam Hauser. The 6-8 Bailey is a former 4-star recruit who missed the past few seasons due to a Mormon Mission.

Seems like Wojo is building something for his resume' but also for Marquette.

Jon Rothstein, Jeff Goodman and Bleacher Reports are reporting Albany guard and grad Joe Cremo to Nova. Eligible immediately and one year of eligibility left.

DiVincenzo's replacement?

Wow, nice pick-up.

He's a Nova type kid. I am actually glad we will get to see him play often.

Cremo can play in the Big East but he is a replacement for Donte the same as Dixon would be for Ponds.

I know I'm not hoping for that.

Source? or was that a joke. I've seen a half dozen official lists and Marcus isn't on any of them.

Oh Portland, not the real combine. Otherwise known as the less than a puncher's chance combine.
