Now, THAT'S a Marquette Warrior for ya'.
The last team to go from worst to first was the '77 Trail Blazers, the same year Marquette won the NCAA's. Of course Doc had nothing to do with either of those as he was in grade school in Chicago.
There were TWO Marquette alums as head coaches this year. Doc and Jim Boylan who was fired from the Bulls. Jim actually did play in '77 for the Warriors.
Two alums, going in two different directions this year.
Congrats Doc!!! You deserve it.
