The Buzz Williams Era Begins

Written by: (Tim Blair (aka NY Warrior))

Buzz Williams' Marquette Warriors hit the court in their season opener against Houston Baptist Huskies on Friday night at the Bradley Center.   Tipoff is set for 7:30pm CT.

Rosiak previews the game well in his latest blog, which can be found here.    He also has a non-blog entry saying that Williams is set for a new day.  However, there appears to be a "day-counter" discrepancy between Rosiak (220 days) and the MUScoop Counter (221 days).  Someone has to get to the bottom of this, but if you read the article, we agree with Corey.

The official Marquette preview can be found here (with a link to the full game notes in .pdf).  Sportsline offers this preview.

Key points about the Huskies:
  • Houston Baptist suits up 10 seniors.
  • Houston Baptist has six D-1 transfers including fellas who played for Purdue, UT-Arlington and Auburn.
  • Houston Baptist like to run - they topped East Texas Baptist University in an exhibition matchup, 104-88.
  • Houston Baptist plays an aggressive schedule.  Also on the docket for the Huskies -- Villanova, SMU, UWGB, Iowa State, Ohio State, Illinois State and Iowa State.
  • Their coach, Ron Cottrell, starts the season with a 361-168 record and has averaged more than 22 wins per season at HBU.
A few pregame MU notes:
  • David Cubillan and Wesley Matthews are expected to play.  
  • When the Three Amigos start against HBU, they will collectively have started a remarkable 299 games in their careers.
  • Dominic James needs to average about 11 points per game this season to become the all-time leading scorer in Marquette history.

Marquette hoops is back.  Life is good.

Heh, I think it's simple. The article was written/posted on Nov 13 (day 220).  Today is the Nov 14 (day 221).
