Marquette Basketball: Strengths and Weaknesses of Golden Eagles' 2014-15 Roster
Jeffrey Phelps

Steve Wojciechowski, former player and assistant coach at Duke under Mike Krzyzewski, is the new head coach at Marquette University. Wojo's hire followed Buzz Williams' unexpected and puzzling decision to leave MU in favor of Virginia Tech.

Williams lasted seven years in Milwaukee, six of which came as the team's head coach following Tom Crean's departure for Indiana. During his time at the helm, Marquette made three Sweet 16s and one Elite Eight appearance, while also making two additional NCAA Tournament appearances.

The 2013-14 season was Williams' least successful, despite being pegged as the preseason favorite in the new Big East Conference. The Golden Eagles finished the season with a 17-15 record, including 9-9 in league play, but missed all postseason tournaments.

The 2014-15 Golden Eagles will not only have a new head coach, they will have new faces on the court as well. The team loses three redshirt senior starters from a year ago in Jake Thomas, Jamil Wilson and Chris Otule, but most importantly, super sixth man and leading scorer Davante Gardner. Here is a look at this year's current roster by class.

  • Juan Anderson, F
  • Derrick Wilson, G
