MU Continues Homestand Saturday Against NC Central

MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin --  The Marquette University men's basketball team (8-3) continues its season-long four-game homestand Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. CT when the squad welcomes North Carolina Central to the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Sports32 will feature the television broadcast, with Dennis Krause (play-by-play) and Jim McIlvaine (analyst) calling the action. The two programs will be meeting for this first time and the matchup will mark the conclusion of the non-conference campaign for MU in 2012-13. After Saturday's outing, Marquette will welcome Connecticut (Jan. 1) and Georgetown (Jan. 5) to begin BIG EAST Conference competition.

MU Hoping To Continue MEAC Success

While Marquette is meeting NC Central for the first time, the Golden Eagles do own a perfect 26-0 record in program history versus teams currently in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC).

The Golden Eagles have collected the most victories (5-0) against Morgan State and Coppin State and most recently defeated Savannah State 71-51 on Dec. 15.
