Marquette media predictions for 2018-’19

We do a lot of writing about what should happen and then a lot more about what should have happened. But rarely do we go on the record as to what we expect will happen.

Last year, I asked some members of the “Marquette media” contingent to flesh out some predictions as to how the season would play out. Turns out, our endgame prognostication was too optimistic (no NCAA Tourney, no 5th place BE finish), but the record and leading player predictions on the whole were quite good.
