Women’s Basketball’s Historic Start Continues

No. 23 Marquette is sitting 8-0 on the year — a new program record — and cannot seem to lose after another undefeated week.

“It is a bit of an unknown as to who will be that double-figure scorer, and it’s a blessing to have that,” head coach Megan Duffy said after the game. “We have a philosophy here: as long as the ball is moving and we’re taking good shots, everyone has the green light to do it.”

Men’s Basketball Hasn’t Beaten Wisconsin in Three Years

No. 3 Marquette went 1-1 this past week, but the Golden Eagles are still winless against the Badgers under head coach Shaka Smart.

“It’s Dec. 2, so it’s an opportunity for us to grow and learn,” Smart said after the game. “A game like this hurts. There were some tears in the locker room because guys really want to win. It’s time to be a big boy and step forward, and that goes for everyone.”

  • The last time Marquette beat Wisconsin was off a last-second tip-in from former forward Justin Lewis Dec. 4, 2020. 

Volleyball’s Season Ends in Round of 32

Marquette was unable to advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.

“We made a whole lot of new volleyball fans over the course of the end of last year and this year out of the Marquette community, the Milwaukee area,” head coach Ryan Theis said about the season.

“Our goal is to be nationally competitive and known in the country as a really strong volleyball team that people don’t want to play come tournament time. And I think this group is is really helping that goal.”
