Scrambled Eggs - Marquette Basketball Two unqualified fans talking about Marquette basketball. This is a weekly podcast about all things related to Marquette basketball from the common fans’ perspective.

Another week and another couple of tough, well fought loses.  The Georgetown loss was especially tough to take given some pretty questionable calls.  We spend time talking about the officiating and the team's performance in the game.  We analyze this weeks performance in total and talk about what's good and what's bad.  We spend some time talking about JaJaun Johnson and where his game is.  We also carry on for a while about Derrick Wilson's best play as a Marquette Warrior....posterizing Paul White.  We wrap up the pod talking about the next couple of games and determine if Marquette will actually get over the hump and record a win or two.


Was it tough? Sure. Did they get a little lucky? Maybe. Is it sweet? No doubt about it.

Marquette is still dancing. The Golden Eagles are in the Sweet 16 for the third consecutive season. This is the first time Marquette has reached three straight Sweet 16's since the tournament field expanded to 64 teams in 1985. The only other time Marquette has been to three straight was from 1971-74, when Al McGuire led the team to four straight. Back then, of course, the "Sweet 16" meant you had just won one game. In other words, this is the first time in Marquette history the team has gone three straight years winning at least two NCAA tournament games.
After a miracle minute saved Marquette from disaster against Davidson, the Golden Eagles went toe-to-toe with Butler, a future Big East opponent and one of the toughest outs in the NCAA's every year. A solid defensive effort and a memorable week from Vander Blue now have Marquette in the East Regional semifinals.

Phil and Joe break down an insane 72 hours for Marquette before looking ahead to the next game.
