NEW YORK – The Marquette men’s basketball team doesn’t care what you think.
Picked to finish near the bottom in the BigEast , the Golden Eagles just won the first outright title in school history with the most wins ever in the conference.
What about most of the pundits picking fourth-seeded Connecticut to steamroll to the league tournament title at Madison Square Garden, despite MU being the top seeding and the sixth-ranked team in the country?
Well, the Golden Eagles just scrapped their way to a tension-filled 70-68 victory over the Huskies on Friday and will play in the Big East title game for the first time since joining the conference in 2005.
