    Ohio State v Marquette

    In a season that’s been defined by an excess of fouls that stems from an effort to increase the amount of scoring that we see on a nightly basis in college hoops, it was somewhat refreshing to see a good old-fashioned defensive slug-fest on Saturday afternoon. No. 10 Ohio State held No. 17 Marquette to…

  13. JT III is great, but Buzz Williams should be Big East Coach of the Year

    Mar 12, 2013, 6:17 PM EDT

    Buzz Williams

    John Thompson III has done a magnificent job with the Georgetown team he has this season. His Hoyas were picked to finish fifth in the conference to begin the year, overcame the loss of second-leading scorer Greg Whittington mid-season, and still pulled together to finish with a share of the Big East title.

    Big news out of Marquette as guard Todd Mayo was declared academically ineligible, the school announced on Monday. Mayo, brother of O.J.

    Buzz Williams is a smooth-talking Texan that has his Marquette Golden Eagles marching on into the Sweet 16, after a win over Murray State.
