The Marquette Golden Eagles boast a 17-6 overall and 8-3 conference record midway through February, making them all but a lock for another NCAA Tournament appearance.
However, there's still plenty of room for Marquette to improve during the final seven conference games to be successful this postseason.
Currently standing in a three-way tie atop the Big East standings with both Syracuse and Georgetown, Buzz Williams and the Marquette faithful should be very pleased with where this team is headed.
Each of the Golden Eagles' remaining three home games come against ranked opponents, while all four road games come against unranked squads.
Essentially, every one of those contests is winnable, but none are cakewalks.
After losing Jae Crowder and Darius Johnson-Odom to graduation last season, both of whom were second round draft picks, Buzz Williams could be up for Big East Coach of the Year honors for this squad, surprising everyone except apparently me.
