HEY: REMEMBER WHEN XAVIER HAD THAT REALLY GOOD POINT GUARD

who was going to wear Marquette out in the Tournament, only everybody forgot to account for Jimmy Butler's tarantular defense and MU pounded the Musketeers into submission? That was a good time. I miss those times.



THIS IS GOOD BEER. BOTTOMS UP.

Marquette's made plenty of trips to Cincinnati before, but we're used to visiting the hoodlums at UC instead of our brothers and sisters in the faith at Xavier. Tonight's Pint Touch is Cincinnati's own Rivertown Brewing Company's Dunkel Beer.
