This year’s big NCAA tournament has been one like no other. Records were set and there are numerous Cinderella stories that many are talking about. Now that teams are in the Sweet-16 portion of the March Madness tournament, previous games mean very little and teams are really showing who does or doesn’t deserve to advance.

Right from the start Marquette took total control of the game in what turned out to be a huge victory for the Golden Eagles. Marquette entered the tournament ranked third, one spot below the Miami Hurricanes, but came out on top 71-61. Marquette will now be advancing to the Elite-8.
