I was fired up going into last night's Marquette game agianst Creighton. They had been playing well as of late and were looking for a benchmark win. By 9:15pm last night, reality set in. Creighton was pumping in three pointers and clearly showing why they are a NCAA Tourney team, and why Marquette is not there this year. Reality is,MU's talent level is that of a NIT team. I was hoping they could overachieve but if there were any hopes they could get to the tourney,they fizzled out last night. Marquette just doesnt do anything special to make the dance. They can play a little defense and play as hard as anyone in the country but the reality is this will be Buzz' first time in the NIT.
