Marquette Preps For Third Round Matchup With League Rival Syracuse
March 19, 2011
The Marquette University men's basketball team continued its stay in Cleveland, Ohio, Saturday with preparations for Sunday night's matchup with Syracuse in the NCAA Championship Third Round at Quicken Loans Arena.
Following a mid-morning breakfast, MU took the court at The Q for just over an hour of practice time before participating in press conferences and interview sessions.
Senior Jimmy Butler and juniors Darius Johnson-Odom and Jae Crowder represented the Golden Eagles in the media room and were followed by head coach Buzz Williams. MU's sessions were highlighted by Williams' recounting of his career path to Bob Ryan and the Boston Globe. The MU head coach's session lasted nearly 30 minutes.
Marquette will have time to relax the rest of the afternoon before continuing game preparations Saturday night at the hotel.
