Web dimes: recapping a busy week of #mubb news

Marquette’s season has had its fair share of ups and downs already, but there has been one constant: content. It seems like every time I log into Twitter, there is some new, interesting article, Vine, Tweet, you name it. Sometimes, it can get a bit overwhelming, so we bring you a concise place to recap the week that was (so far).

Jimmy Blocks James

James Harden is probably the best shooting guard in the NBA. Jimmy Butler was not impressed.  

No Place like Home

Dwyane Wade is still one of the best 2-guards in the NBA and has had the most successful post-Marquette career of anyone to lace them up in the Blue and Gold. This simple Instagram went viral fairly quickly, reaching outlets like Sports Illustrated by the end of the day. Can’t buy that kind of good publicity.

#mubb on #mubb Crime

I think Wes took the love his Marquette brethren were getting personally, spinning Wade like a top before burying a trey in his face.  

Agau to Hoyas

In less positive news,the Louisville transfer Akoy Agau chose Georgetown over Marquette as his landing spot. I guess Tuesday’s game was for keeps. 

Dawson to Liberty

Former Marquette guard John Dawson chose Liberty as his next destination, where he will be coached by former Marquette assistant and good friend of Buzz, Dale Layer. 

Sources!

The funniest part of the Dawson news bit was having a famous recruiting analyst Tweet that his sources were telling him Dawson would end up at Liberty about 23 hours after Dawson’s father posted the news himself.

Rise of the BEast

DePaul’s mini surge to start the season has them leading the conference with a 3-0 record. This means Joe Lunardi’s bracket includes them as an auto bid. Now, this won’t last, and I’ll still be surprised if DePaul doesn’t finish in the cellar, but it’s pretty clear that the Big East is not dead. It will probably end up with 5 (maybe 6) bids when all is said and done, but the whole mid-major label has been shown to be a farce. 

JiMVP

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Jimmy Butler has gone supernova and is hotter than Hansel in Zoolander.

He’s an MVP candidate

He’s going to get a max contract at the end of the year.

His defense is so good, it’s even put in highlight reels.

He’s a bad, bad man.

Feeling it

Flashback

Al McGuire invented cool, calm and collected.

Derrick’s improvement

Finally, for the stat heads out there, Misix does a tremendous job highlighting Derrick Wilson’s improvement and how it’s impacting Marquette this year.
