Marquette basketball

Rather than dwell on the embarrassment that was Marquette’s Sweet 16 performance against North Carolina, I prefer to take the glass half-full approach and look ahead to next season.  Since it looks like Buzz Williams will not be fleeing the Brew City for Oklahoma, Missouri, or any of the other rumored coaching vacancies that his name has been linked to in the past couple weeks, the Golden Eagles only have to replace three seniors; Jimmy Butler, Dwight Buycks, and Joe Fulce.  (I guess four if you count Rob Frozena.)  Here is a look at how the 2011-2012 Marquette roster is shaping up and what I like and the role I would like to see each player have next season.
