Pitt all but clinches No.1 seed, Marquette all but says goodbye


It's going to be a sad ending for the Marquette Golden Eagles, although we could probably make that past tense. Their quartet of seniors + Lazar Hayward were a formidable bunch worthy of being part of the "deep tournament run" conversation. They (me) say you need guards to make noise in March-- well Buzz WIlliams had a bunch of them with Dominic James serving as the glue that held it all together.

But James is gone and the void is becoming more and more glaring, eveidence in tonight's loss to Pitt. 

In just seven days, Marquette has lost three in a row and an important cog in their offense. Needless to say, it was hard to say goodbye.
