Dance Party: Marquette Earns 3 Seed In NCAA Tournament

Al Bello

Your Golden Eagles are headed to Kentucky one year after plowing to the Sweet 16 from the Bluegrass State.

For the eighth consecutive year, Marquette is headed to the NCAA men's basketball tournament.

This time around, the Golden Eagles are headed out to Lexington as the 3 seed in the East Region, where they will play 14 seed Davidson at some point on Thursday. The winner of that game will play the winner of Butler and Bucknell on Saturday. Times will be announced later, as CBS and Turner get to decide when the games are played.

Since Marquette joined the Big East, the Golden Eagles are the only team in the BE to qualify for the NCAA tournament every single season. On top of that, there's this fun fact from associate athletic director Mike Broeker:

That's an extremely lofty group to be included in, even with the Badgers dragging it down.

The Big East ended up with eight teams in, the most of any conference in the country. The next highest was the Big Ten, with seven. It's the fourth straight year and sixth time in history that the Big East has put at least eight teams into the field, both of which have never been done before.
