Marquette ready for 2013-14 season

MILWAUKEE -

The new era of Big East basketball begins with high expectations for one of the old favorites.

Marquette, one of the three co-champions last season, was picked by league coaches to win the conference in a preseason poll.

It's a lofty standard for a program in a new Big East that will draw renewed attention in the college basketball world.

Coach Buzz Williams says the best way for Marquette to deal with the league change is to simply win.

He'll rely on a new starting backcourt with star Vander Blue gone, along with Trent Lockett and trusted point man Junior Cadougan.

Derrick Wilson and Todd Mayo -- Bucks' guard O.J. Mayo's brother -- could get first crack as the new starters when Marquette opens the season Nov. 8 against Southern.
