“Paint Touches with WMUR Sports” today featured the Marquette Tribune’s Mike Nelson and Andrei Greska as well as Marquette radio’s Matt Trebby and Dave
Tukesbrey. Make sure to listen every Friday from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Marquette Radio.
Jim McIlvaine joined the show today to give his thoughts on conference realignment and what lies ahead for the Marquette forwards. McIlvaine is Marquette’s all-time leader in blocked shots and ranks 16th in rebounding and currently works as a color analyst for Marquette basketball on 540 ESPN.
Here are some highlights from today’s show:
McIlvaine talks about what conference realignment means for Marquette and gives his thoughts on Chris Otule’s 2011 outlook, Davante Gardner’s progression and what to expect from Oregon transfer Jamil Wilson.
A year ago, Davante Gardner averaged 4.3 points in just nine minutes per game. Will a slimmed down, more experienced Gardner average eight points per game or more in 2011?
Is Jamil Wilson already Marquette’s second best player? How important is Jae Crowder’s improvement on the defensive end?
What numbers should we expect from Chris Otule? Davante Gardner? Jae Crowder? Jamil Wilson?
