Marquette (#14 AP), who is sits uptop the BIG EAST at 4-0, heads to THE DUNK in what will be a huge game for the Friars.

Can the Friars pull off the upset and finally get a signature win this season?  Can PC contain the “Three Amigos”?  Can Sharaud Curry break free from Dominic James?  More importantly, will the Friars ever be able to satisfy Marvin Barnes by tossing elbows during the game and afterwards play a pickup game outside in the snow while simultaneously lifting weights?

Friars, can we PASS YOU TORCH?  CAN YOU CARRY THE TORCH!  FOR FUCK’S SAKE, TAKE THE TORCH!  Marvin’s hands are starting to melt.
