Breathless

Marquette’s first season in the Big East Conference has (gasp) been amazing.

Dominic James is Big East Rookie of the Year.

In case you haven’t been keeping up, here’s a sample of how Marquette performed early in Big East competition.

”Steve Novak registered career highs with 41 points and 16 rebounds, leading the Golden Eagles to a 94-79 upset victory over Connecticut in the Big East opener in front of an electrified crowd of 15,831 at the Bradley Center.”

”Faced with its first Big East road game in program history, Marquette managed a win at Seton Hall in a hotly contested game.”

”A game high 28 points from senior Steve Novak, including the game-winning basket with 1.1 seconds left in the game, and freshmen Jerel McNeal and Dominic James each scoring in double figures led the Marquette men’s basketball team to a 67-65 win over Notre Dame in front of a school record crowd of 18,874 fans at the Bradley Center.”

”Led by sophomore Dan Fitzgerald, who registered a career high 18 points on six of seven shots from three-point range, Marquette defeated rival DePaul 62-47 at the Bradley Center.”

”Steve Novak scored 19 points and set a season record for three-pointers, leading the Golden Eagles to a 57-51 victory over No. 17 Georgetown.”

”For the first time since its Final Four run in 2002-03 and for the 24th time in school history, the Marquette men’s basketball team will participate in the NCAA Division 1 championship tournament.”
