WISCONSIN SPORTS ROUNDUP: Marquette the favorite to win the new Big East
Marquette athletic director Larry Williams says he's confident his school can get to an elite level from its place in the new Big East Conference. The league held its first men's basketball Media Day in New York yesterday. Williams said his biggest concern is whether the new Big East is strong enough for Marquette to have a high-enough R-P-I ranking for a top seeding in the N-C-A-A Tournament. He said Marquette has a stronger non-conference schedule, and it should see his team through.
