Why I am a Marquette basketball fan

I read with interest the "missing Scoopers" thread, and I will have more to say about that later,  but I did want to share this:

Hopefully this reinforces that Markus is more about helping cancer than being a cancer. 

What a great player and, more importantly, great person and rep for Marquette.  Thanks for posting that Chick.

Wonderful stuff.

"He really puts a lot of things ahead of basketball."  Well, no wonder he doesn't average 30.
You actually have a degree from Marquette?

Quote from: muguru
No...and after reading many many psosts from people on this board that do...I have to say I'm MUCH better off, if this is the type of "intelligence" a degree from MU gets you. It sure is on full display I will say that.

Great post! Always good to see things like this. What a great representative for the University.

Nicely done Chick...thanks for sharing.  Something to be proud of even if others mock it.

Plus 1 as well.  We are Marquette.  We may not be elite, but we are Marquette.    Hopefully some of the naysayers here can understand that.  We are still darn good!

Awesome post. Was interesting hearing someone's commentary from outside the program was of the players, the coaches and of the practice.  That young man has seen more of the current program than anyone on this board.

Excellent post Chick! We are Marquette because we win games, but even moreso because we recruit great kids.

It kinda reminds me of this story I read about Dominic several years ago:

https://www.espn.com/espnmag/story?id=4033119

This story starts during James' junior year of high school. He began slapping hands with Natasha Snyder before every game as she sat along the baseline at Richmond High. Natasha, who graduated from Richmond after Dominic's freshman year, suffers from a difficult-to-diagnose movement disorder—falling under the umbrella term dystonia—that combines the effects of cerebral palsy and cystic fibrosis.

Dominic and Natasha became friends. Hand slaps became hugs. When Dominic went to Marquette, they continued to stay in touch through Facebook and instant messaging. And when James found out that Natasha was going to Chicago for some tests this past December, he invited the Snyders to Milwaukee for a game.

And that's all they expected: a game. But James talked to Crean about Natasha, and they decided to take it a step further. So Natasha was on the floor for the anthem and again after the game, when Dominic gave her a game ball signed by the team and a special guest, former Marquette star Dwyane Wade. She got to meet Wade, too.

"It's been a tough couple of years for Natasha, and to see that smile was really special," says her father, Jim. "That was not an everyday smile. For Dominic to do that—I can't even tell you what it meant to us."


Plenty of great examples, but guys like Markus and Dominic are shining examples of cura personalis.

WE ARE MARQUETTE!

Yeah, this pretty much perfectly summarizes what I was going to say.

It seems like Markus is consistently doing stuff like this, but doesn't post about it or bring the attention on himself for likes. A rare thing for someone his age. Great player, great kid. Deserves one more shot at getting hot in a tourney run, I hope he gets it!

MU82

Agree completely. I am a Marquette basketball fan because of our rich tradition, what basketball does for the university, entertainment and my hope of MU winning a NC again in my lifetime. No doubt that Howard, and it appears all of the guys, are great representatives of MU off the court and that is a great added bonus.

Because Marquette gave me a life.
Because I nearly cried watching the video.

Marquette is not the only university with core values, but it is one of the few.

I don't think all the universities or teams in the Big East share our values, you'll see.
