The last non-conference home game of the season starts today at noon as Marquette (7-5, 0-1 Big East) takes on Vermont (6-4). The game starts at noon because of Marquette's annual Milwaukee Public Schools game. As usual, the game will be streamed on GoMarquette.com with Kent Sommerfeld and Kyle Dlabay on the call.
