Over the weekend, Marquette traveled to the Dunkin' Doughnuts Center to take on the Friars of Providence. Providence has been a tough team this year with their only loss in conference being at Georgetown in a game where Providence gave GU all that they could handle. Providence has a very fast team and experienced leadership in guard Sharaud Curry, and a new coach in Keno Davis, who came in this year after leading a surprizing Drake team a year ago.
Providence was quick out of the gate, and Marquette was down 13 in the Second half. Interestingly, it may have been this guy (highlight begins around :50) who keyed Marquette's comeback over the last 15 minutes to eventually win by 9.
Seriously, what was he doing? and isn't there any security to restrict people from entering the court during a game?
Anyways, Marquette is off to their best start in conference play since joining the big east, and have a lackluster DePaul team coming into the Bradley Center this weekend. But after that the honeymoon is over with eight of MU's final twelve games against ranked opponents.
