The Marquette Men's And Women's Basketball History Books Have Been Rewritten

New, 2 comments

The 2015-16 season gave MU fans some of the best performances that the athletic department has ever seen from first year players.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

I'd probably have to do a lot of cajoling and convincing to get anyone to believe that Marquette's men's and women's basketball seasons could be labelled a 100% success.  With final records of 20-13 and 14-16 respectively, and no postseason appearances between them, I can't even necessarily give the whole enterprise a blind thumbs up.

There were, however, a number of bright spots and reasons for optimism for the future of both programs.

Both the men's and women's basketball record books were drastically re-written this season, with multiple players on both squads forcing their way into the conversation as some of the best players to ever pull on a blue and gold uniform.  In some cases, and I think you know who I mean here, some players made a case for being the best ever in their particular class at Marquette.

Let's take a wander through the history book and see where Marquette's players stacked up.
