The Marquette Golden Eagles may not have the superstar tandems that they've had in the past, with the likes of Jimmy Butler, Jae Crowder, Darius Johnson-Odom and Vander Blue on campus. They do, however, bring back plenty of talent from a 2013 Elite Eight squad, while also bringing in five talented newcomers.
The Golden Eagles lost Trent Lockett and Junior Cadougan to graduation, while Vander Blue's decision to leave for the NBA may have been a poor one. Chris Otule, Juan Anderson and Jake Thomas all return to school, even after close calls with eligibility and transfer decisions.
Buzz Williams also brings in four freshmen and a junior-college stud in the form of Jameel McKay. Williams is one of the best young coaches in the business, and the 2013-14 season should do nothing but help his already-renowned reputation.
