Men's WTE Top 25: Texas, Kentucky get invited to the party

Jeff Borzello, ESPN Staff WriterJul 1, 2024, 10:00 AM ET

17. Marquette Golden Eagles
Previous ranking: 17

Tyler Kolek and Oso Ighodaro have played their final game in a Marquette uniform, but Shaka Smart brings back three starters in Kam Jones, David Joplin and Stevie Mitchell, plus key rotation players Chase Ross, Ben Gold and a potentially healthy Sean Jones. This is a team that has earned 2-seeds in each of the past two NCAA tournaments and didn't see a single player leave or enter the program via the portal this spring. The Golden Eagles shouldn't fade away quickly.
Projected starting lineup

Sean Jones (5.8 PPG)
Kam Jones (17.2 PPG)
Stevie Mitchell (8.8 PPG)
David Joplin (10.8 PPG)
Ben Gold (5.0 PPG)

Some one needs to remind Mr Borzello that Chase Ross Averaged  21.8 minutes per game last season and will be a key player on the team.

What part of “ returns Chase Ross…..a key rotation player” does he need to be educated about?

He obviously isn’t aware of the severity of Sean’s injury but pretty easy to forgive him for that.

I am very excited about having additional size going into next season. From the people I have spoken with the expectations for Owens are very high. I think the athletic length of this team is going to cause a lot of issues for other teams. My expectation for next year is rising quite a bit based off what I have heard from people I trust.

I agree with you Goose. It is fun to see Shaka's recruiting strategy come to fruition. It is clear we will be longer, bigger and more athletic.

I understand the reservations around a redshirt freshman like Hamilton, but perhaps he's more accurately viewed as an upside true freshman. Choosing a redshirt season over senior year in prep school is unique. I'm buying the hype to the tune of 10-15 min/game next season.

None of the optimism thus far is proof of anything but I like hearing it.  I hope Hamilton will be a contributor.  MU does need his size and strength. 

But I do like hearing good things.  There is always a sliver of truth to them.  It’s better than the alternative like hearing nothing about Amadou. 

As a Bears fan for years, I never heard one good thing about Fields passing skills at training camp.  That would be something a reporter would be dying to tell if it were true.  And his play as a passer backed that up every year he played for them.

Hamilton is getting good press leaks and it’s encouraging.  Therefore I am hopeful. Hope it continues.

I understand the enthusiasm for this year's team, and I hope it is well placed. On the other hand, I remain sort of neutral. I have no idea what to really expect. Having Kam and Chase back is a huge plus, and I do expect Ben to make a big step forward this season. But, I really do not expect Sean Jones to play this year, and the three freshmen are, well, freshmen. Who knows what to really expect from them? They all still have to learn how to play defense.

Just got an email promoting MU season tickets, and it contained lots of factoids.

This probably has been mentioned before, but it jumped out at me:

Marquette has ranked in the top 25 nationally in attendance each of the last 22 seasons, the only non-football school to have done so.

It was fun to be part of our largest Fiserv crowd ever last season (18,095 for NMD), and here's hoping I get a chance to be part of an even larger crowd this season!

This is mentioned often, especially by Marquette.  Seeing we have one of the largest arenas for college hoops, it is no surprise that we are continually in the top 25 in attendance.

Just because you play in a large arena does not guarantee you will sell a lot of tickets...    UWM plays in a pretty good size arena...

DePaul and Georgetown in our conference. And Georgetown was only half-filling their arena even when they were regulars in the top 25. I'm sure there are other teams but I'm not as familiar with how schools in other conferences draw.

NCAA has not posted 2023-2024 season on their website yet, but the 2022-2023 season is there:

Thanks for that. Would love to see rankings by percentage of capacity, but maybe such a thing doesn't exist.

You have to pick UConn as the favorite to win the BE again this year. They may not be as good as last season, but still should be the cream of the crop. St. Johns looks like they should be significantly better than last year, and I expect SJU, MU, and Prov to be the second tier of the conference. SH and X seem to be sort of unknowns. And, the bottom of the conference looks like it might be better than last year with Depaul and Georgetown actually winning some games. MU should be in the top four in the conference, but I am not sure they will be better than that. Depends on the improvement of the young players.
