Let's start out with the most high profile Marquette related news: Last night, Marquette's own Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat got stunned by the Dallas Mavericks 95-93 on a Dirk Nowitzki layup with 3.6 seconds remaining in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, tying the series at one game a piece. Wade hit a 3 to put the Heat up 88-73 with 7:14 remaining in the game directly in front of the Dallas bench and posed like he had accomplished something. Dallas then went on a 20-2 run to close the game out. As Marquette fans, where do you stand on cheering for the Heat in this series? Poll at the bottom of the post, and feel free to add further comments as needed.
