The History of Marquette Basketball from Wikipedia.
The Marquette Golden Eagles Basketball (formerly the Marquette Warriors) team is the basketball team that represents Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The school's 1977 team, coached by Al McGuire, won the NCAA championship. Marquette is the only university to spurn an NCAA invite and did so due to an unjustified low seeding and having to travel. They were ranked 8th in the country at the time and were one of the favorites to win the NCAA championship. They were invited to the NIT which they won. Then NCAA was so incensed at being spurn by Marquette that they instituted an NCAA rule which forbid an NCAA Division I level men's basketball team from spurning an NCAA bid for an 1970 National Invitation Tournament bid. An antitrust case by the NIT ensued over this issue, and the NCAA caved and settled out of court. The basis of the case was an antitrust issue against the NCAA for FORCING an NCAA Division I men's basketball team to accept an NCAA bid over a better NIT bid (home court advantage, opportunity to play more games, and finally an opportunity to win a National Invitation Tournament Championship.
Currently Marquette competes in the Big East. It last played in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament in 2012. The Golden Eagles are coached by Buzz Williams, who is going to be entering his fourth year as head basketball coach. Marquette maintains rivalries and highly-anticipated games with several other schools, including the University of Wisconsin–Madison, University of Louisville, University of Notre Dame, University of Pittsburgh, and DePaul University. The team plays its home games at the Bradley Center in downtown Milwaukee, where the Milwaukee Bucks NBA team also plays. Despite only having 8,000 undergraduates, Marquette was ranked 10th in average attendance among NCAA Division 1 teams in 2009 and 2010.
Marquette Basketball is located in the state of Wisconsin.
