Marquette’s Basketball Programs… A 10! A F’n 10!
You might have heard yesterday that Marquette’s men and women’s basketball teams are in the top 10. They’re the only program in the nation to boast that honor. We talked on the podcast today about how there hasn’t been a better time to be a Milwaukee basketball fan, but when has there been a better time to love all things Marquette hoops? Steve Wojciechowski and Carolyn Kieger have to be proud of what they put together at this university.
We hope #mubb and #muwbb fans are enjoying the year and are grateful for your support! Combined record of 36-6 overall and 16-1 in the @BIGEASTMBB #WeAreMarquette @MarquetteWBB @markushoward11 @NatishaHiedeman pic.twitter.com/5jDZsqQ5Oa

The two teams have won a combined 17 straight games. Now, the men’s team faces a very tough game at Butler on Wednesday night. I’m trying not to get too cocky because I have a bad feeling about that one. The minute I start puffing my chest out is the minute Marquette starts to sink a little bit. I think there was a thought that the women’s team could be special this year considering their success last season, but I don’t think anyone expected Marquette’s men team to be in the top 10. Hell, we worried about the bubble this year and hoped to be 3-3 in the six important non-conference games. Who knew they would be here?
