Marquette Wins The Great Alaska Shoot-out
Ryan Amoroso the 6-8 Soph forward had a career night as Marquette held off last years NIT champion South Carolina to win the Shootout.
Wes Matthews Jr. is nice but his freshmen backcourt mate Dominic James from Richmond Indiana is the real catalyst for this young team.
Marquette has three seniors and two juniors on its roster but only Steve Novak will be asked to contribute regularly. How this team does this year is dependent on the ability of Tom Crean to get the most out of his young guys. They stepped up this morning and played an almost flawless game. I know they will be unable to play this well game in and game out throughout a Big East season but they gained some good confidence out of this win.
