Big Week for Markus
« on: July 08, 2024, 04:04:01 PM »
The Puerto Rican national team qualified for the Olympics


https://www.fiba.basketball/en/events/fiba-olympic-qualifying-tournament-2024-san-juan-puerto-rico

Markus is on the roster and is expected to be in Paris, but he did not play in the qualifying tournament. He was otherwise occupied:

Congratulations and best of luck with both.

Congrats to Markus, but do we want 17 year olds having babies?

He doesn't turn 17 until next month.

We've had a pretty good run of Marquette guards going to Olympics.  Wade of course, now Markus, but also David Cubillan (Venezuela), and famously Butch Lee (also with PR).

Hopefully, the day will come when the Big East's all time leading scorer is appreciated in his own backyard.

A fellow alumni from my high school, Tremont Waters, made the Puerto Rican team also.

going for gold with his brother Jordan must be great. Going for gold with Wisconsin Badger Aleem Ford? Priceless.

I guess gold medalist Jimmy Butler is easier to forget than David Cubillan 🤣

HS coach…hey Viper, pass the ball to JJ Weber. Pass it to JJ. Why are you shooting?…pass it to JJ. JJ will be All Big Ten at Wisconsin…pass it to him! Why are you shooting when JJ is open? Pass it to JJ. Pass it. Pass it. Pass it.

Markus to the Olympics is not happening, not with the Puerto Rican Olympic team.  The twelve players at the pre olympic tournament will be the Olympic team. It’s absurd to bring somebody else three weeks from the Olympics and disrupt the team chemistry.

It's my understanding he was on the team in May for qualifiers, left because he had a baby. I think he'd be welcomed back, they are already familiar with him and it'd be an easy integration.

Not sure if he goes back but I don't think PR would say no.
