DJ Wilson got the start tonight.
My fellow M go basketball fans, looking forward to this one? I really don't know a ton about Marquette this year, but both teams are 2-0. Game is at MSG.
Marquette has had a strong knack recently of being a very average Big East team, but are coming off a pretty solid season last year. They have one guy at 6-11, after that they are about as short as Michigan.
Pittsburgh vs. SMU – 7pm
Marquette vs. Michigan – 9:30pm
Friday, November 18th (tickets are to these games):
Third-place game - 4:30pm

Wounded Warrior Project is the beneficiary of the 2K Classic. The mission of Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is to honor and empower wounded warriors. WWP's purpose is to raise awareness and to enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.
For all the talk of Nik being a potential bust in the NBA, it was nice to see him turn in a good game last night. In a 4 point victory, he logged 24 minutes, shot very well from the field with a couple 3's, and scored 14. I'm sure he could contribute more in terms of assists and boards, but this is still a nice night. He's my favorite player of all time, passing Glen Rice and Jalen, and I hope this is the beginning of a breakthrough in his NBA career.
Opening night for Team 101, let's see what this team is all about!
