Marquette “upsets” Duke 73-62

Posted by syracusan on November 22, 2006

MarquetteThe Big East had a couple of tough losses today, which I’m sure the haters are going to find a way to gripe about. League bottom-feeder Rutgers, who apparently will be truly awful this year, lost at home to previously 0-4 Jackson State. Ouch. Meanwhile, the Bob Huggins-less Cincinnati lost at home to, um, Wofford. OK, so not a great showing. But neither of those teams was picked in the top ten of the conference this season.

HOWEVER, some shit went down in Missouri tonight at the CBE Classic. Marquette, who is not a bottom feeder, took Coach K and the Blue Devils behind the barn for an old fashion re-education. Welcome to the Big East, Golden Eagles. I already like you more than the last Eagles that we had. Marquette is ranked 13th and 17th in the polls, whereas Duke was 8th and 9th. Marquette, who also beat Bobby Knight’s previously undefeated Texas Tech squad the night before, should swing into the top ten after this. Duke meanwhile…well, they’ll probably move up to 5th or so.

Even sweeter: Syracuse native and notorious turncoat Greg Paulus had 7 points, 6 turnovers, and no rebounds before fouling out trying to deal with last year’s Big East rookie of the year, Dominic James. Good job, traitor. Devendorf is 6 times better anyway, I’m glad your overrated ass is down south. If Duke is counting on Paulus to be their next superstar, it’s going to be a long year.
