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.

ATTENTION:

Major updates were made to the servers / software hosting redmen.com. There was also one significant change to the website this week to address keeping up with current standards and practices.

It has now become standard practice for all websites to be served as https (as opposed to the original http).


A couple of years ago I enabled https on the site as optional but as of today, the site is forcing https. Any link coming into the site should be automatically converted on the fly and you should not have to do anything on your end.

However if you do notice recent problems, please contact me directly via email: webmaster@redmen.com or via private message on the site.


Also if you have forgotten your username and/or password here are two links to address that (the links only work if you are not currently logged in):
