Let's go to the tale of the tape, after the jump.

MARQUETTE PROBABLE STARTERS:

OTHER KEY STATS AND WHIMSY:

  • Centenary shooting percentages (2010-'11): FG: 36.5%; 3PT: 26.5%; FT: 57.9%
  • You may have heard that Centenary is dropping from Division I to Division III. Contrary to what their 0-11 mark might lead you to believe, the move is actually happening next year. God speed, merry Gentlemen.
  • Centenary starts a player named Maxx Nakwaasah. From the double X in his first name, I can confidently state that he is exxxxxtreme. And that he probably has a promising career in adult film.

BEER OF THE GAME: 'Tis the season: I tried Abita's Christmas Ale, and I think I like it. I think. According to the label, Abita makes a different Christmas brew every year -- without disclosing what type of beer it actually is. So I boldly went, and the results were satisfying.

Enjoy the game, and bring me home a winner.
