March Madness 2011 Bracket Riser: Marquette

Marquette until very recently was on the March Madness 2011 bubble but we are now calling them a riser after 3 straight wins. Marquette started off the winning over a week ago by beating Seton Hall at home 73-64, then beat UCONN 74-67 on the road in OT for the marquee win, and finished out the week with a 86-62 home beat down of Providence. How is Marquette suddenly rolling you ask in a tough Big East, the answer is that their sophomore class has upped its game to the point it can now win against the rest of the very senior laden conference. In the blowout over Providence sophomore Chris Otule had 16 and fellow sophomore Junior Cadougan had 10 and 10 assists. If you face this team in March watch out because they can light the nets as they are 16th in the nation in shooting percentage at .478 and are 21st overall in points scored.
