Marquette Golden Eagles men's basketball

The Marquette Golden Eagles men's basketball team (formerly the Marquette Hilltoppers, Marquette Warriors, and Marquette Gold) represents Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Marquette currently competes in the Big East. It last played in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament in 2019. Marquette maintains rivalries and highly anticipated games with several other schools, including Villanova University, Georgetown University, and DePaul University. The team plays its home games at Fiserv Forum in downtown Milwaukee, where the Milwaukee Bucks NBA team also plays, which opened in September 2018 as the replacement for both teams' home of the previous 30 seasons, the Bradley Center.[2] Despite only having 8,000 undergraduates, Marquette was ranked 10th in average attendance among NCAA Division 1 teams in 2009 and 2010.

Marquette is the only university to spurn a NCAA Tournament invite and did so due to a low seeding in the 1970 NCAA Tournament and having to travel. They were ranked 8th in the country at the time and were one of the favorites to win the NCAA championship. They were invited to the 1970 NIT which they won. The NCAA later instituted a rule which forbade an NCAA Division I level men's basketball team from spurning an NCAA bid for an NIT bid. An antitrust case by the NIT ensued over this issue, and the NCAA settled out of court.

NCIT results

The Hilltoppers, as they were then called, appeared in the last National Catholic Invitational Tournament in 1952 and won the NCIT championship under their first year head coach, Tex Winter. Marquette beat Iona, St. Francis (NY) and then St. Francis (PA) for the title.[4]
