Championship Friday On The Horizon, Titles To Be Claimed
July 25, 2013
OFFICIAL CAMP WEBSITE
Championship Friday. These two words have come to define a generation of summer campers at Marquette, individuals whose names echo throw the rafters of the Al McGuire Center after just a whisper.
For the first time in recent memory, not a single team in any of the divisions finished the regular season undefeated. Team USA (6-2) held on to the top seed in the Olympic Division and Kentucky (7-1) finished in first place by just a few percentage points. The NBA ranks were highly competitive, with several teams moving multiple positions thanks to a strong showing on Thursday. The Bulls and Trail Blazers both finished 7-2 to top the standings and the Mavericks and Spurs won all three of their games to claim the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds, respectively.
CHAMPIONSHIP FRIDAY SCHEDULE: Championship Friday features tournament action in all three divisions. Game times for the opening rounds are 9:15 a.m., 9:35 a.m., 9:55 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. at each gym location on campus. Consolation and championship games, all played in the Al McGuire Center, are slated for 12:45 p.m. and 1:15 p.m., respectively. Brackets will be posted to the team’s official Facebook page (/MarquetteMensBB) by 7 p.m. on Thursday night and will be updated throughout the day on Friday.
CAMP STORE: Check out the official Camp Store on the main concourse level of the Al McGuire Center. Food, drinks and MU gear will be available. Campers will be able to purchase “camp cash cards” for various dollar amounts so they don’t have to worry about having cash. The “Camp Combo” returns and features a T-Shirt/Shorts for $35 or headband/wristband duo for $12.
