Lunardi's Logic

Marquette under Buzz Williams is one of the toughest teams around. He took the Golden Eagles to the Sweet 16 last year as a No. 11 seed and we should expect nothing less this time around as a No. 3 seed. I'd even like Marquette as a Final Four sleeper if not for the potential buzz saw of Missouri in the regionals.
