The Marquette Golden Eagles won’t be in the N-C-A-A Tournament. The critical blow to Marquette’s hopes probably came in a 70-62 loss to DePaul February 24th. The Eagles weren’t even that close to the “bubble,” with at least four teams left out who were ranked higher on Selection Sunday. The last four squads chosen by the tournament committee were UCLA, St. Bonaventure, Arizona State, and Syracuse. Six Big East schools made the tournament — Villanova, Xavier, Providence, Creighton, Seton Hall and Butler. Marquette will host Harvard at 6:00PM Wednesday in the first round of the NIT.
