Wisconsin just announced their non-conference schedule and not surprisingly Marquette isn't on the schedule - https://uwbadgers.com/sports/womens-basketball/schedule

MU and UW haven't played each other since the 2017-18 season.  Yes I know UW has been bad for awhile but I still liked this rivarlry game.

Awful news!

According to UCONN's Boneyard, the injury was on Monday during a pick-up game. Surgery on Friday.

This team is fabulously flawed and makes up for it with system, determination, coaching, energy, and all sorts of intangibles that make the whole much greater than the sum of the parts.

Natisha Hiedeman continues to get a lot of playing time and play pretty well for the Connecticut Sun who are currently 3rd in the WNBA right now.  She had 4 3's and 16 total points in a recent game - https://twitter.com/WNBA/status/1554635153158410242?s=20&t=ffe1XqM7ufkGheJpym_EZw

I really hope MU puts something up in the Al soon to honor her - she had a great career at MU and is still the only MU alum to play in the WNBA.

As long as Marquette is willing to play a home and home with Wisconsin, that’s all they can do. If Wisconsin is unwilling to play, MU can schedule a regional power in place of it.

Recruiting update - https://twitter.com/benschultz52/status/1556809380682768387?s=20&t=rOxbgRs9nw9OI4LrsbtSAQ

I had fun seeing my first WNBA regular season game in person yesterday - Connecticut Sun at Chicago Sky.  It was not Natisha Hiedeman's best game of the season and the Sun lost in a close game.  But it was great to see Hiedeman play in person in the WNBA.  I'm hoping they can do well in the playoffs this season.

The non-congerence schedule is out - https://gomarquette.com/sports/womens-basketball/schedule

It's not particularly challenging and one thing that sticks out to me is they have no true away games.  There are some potential tougher match-ups in their tournament.

Release about it - https://gomarquette.com/news/2022/8/24/womens-basketball-marquette-wbb-releases-2022-23-non-conference-slate.aspx

Congrats to Natisha Hiedeman and the Connecticut Sun!  They went on a 16-0 run to end the game in Chicago tonight to advance to the WNBA Finals to take on the Las Vegas Aces.

Here's a clip of Hiedeman from tonight - https://twitter.com/SchroederWBAY/status/1568069289336250368?s=20&t=BRrcUDlowaMGg5Myh-4T_g

The season starts on Monday with a scream game at noon at the Al.

Here's a Journal-Sentinel preview article - https://www.jsonline.com/story/sports/college/marquette/2022/11/03/jordan-king-playing-senior-season-at-marquette-for-coach-megan-duffy/69610170007/

Jordan King was on the preseason all big East team and MU was picked to finish 6th - no surprise UCONN was the unanimous pick to win the BE this season:
https://gomarquette.com/news/2022/10/18/womens-basketball-jordan-king-named-to-preseason-all-big-east-team

They don't have any away games during their non-conference schedule - I don't think I've ever seen that.  They do have some neutral games at a tournament in the Bahamas with tough opponents there.  But the last non-conference game versus Colorado looks to be the only real tough opponent at home before BE play starts.

Aizhanique Mayo we hardly knew you!

https://marquettewire.org/4087250/sports/aizhanique-mayo-no-longer-part-of-marquette-womens-basketball-team/

Quote
Aizhanique Mayo is no longer a member of the Marquette women’s basketball team, head coach Megan Duffy announced Saturday.

In a statement to the Marquette Wire, Duffy said Mayo has entered the NCAA transfer portal and is no longer on the team.

The 5-foot-8 first-year was not seen on the Golden Eagles’ bench during their 75-47 season opener win over Fairleigh Dickinson Monday and last night’s 75-55 win over Holy Cross.

Mayo arrived at Marquette this past summer after playing high school basketball at Notre Dame Catholic High School in Fairfield, Connecticut.

In 2020-21, Mayo was named the MaxPreps Connecticut High School Player of the Year after averaging 20.4 points, 7.0 assists, 6.8 rebounds and 5.0 steals per contest that season.

Without Mayo, the Golden Eagles now have just five guards on their roster and has one available scholarship spot open on their roster.

Yeah - I found it strange MU didn't release anything Friday as she wasn't on the roster any more on Friday. 

The team is off to a 3-0 start but that was expected with their opponents in these games.  Now comes the toughest part of their non-conference schedule with a tournament in the Bahamas.

No but I’m sure glad it did 😀.  Texas was ranked #3 and that’s the highest rated program MU has ever beaten.

Was gonna say. I know they lost to UConn, but still, that seemed borderline program changing win.

There's talk that Texas is overrated now especially with Rori Harmon out.  But it still was a nice win for Marquette and garnered them a lot of attention.  They face Gonzaga at 1:30P today.  Gonzaga also picked up their best win in program history yesterday knocking off #6 Louisville in overtime.  So there is a Texas-Louisville match-up today as expected - it's just not in the part of the bracket everyone expected it to be.

When Chloe and Company knock of UConn this year, it won't even be their best win of the season!

With Loserville going down, Marquette has a real shot at making the title game tomorrow.
