Nearly 1,500 fans attended the Fifth Annual Texas Style Bar-B-Q Wednesday night on Marquette's campus, capping another successful edition of the fan-friendly event.
The night's short program included remarks from Rev. Scott R. Pilarz, S.J., Vice President and Director of Athletics Larry Williams and head coach Buzz Williams.
Each of the returning players in attendance, as well as the valuable support staff, was presented a Sweet 16 ring and Buzz went through the entire non-conference schedule during his time on stage.
The Marquette coaches and players hosted almost 40 former players during a reception prior to the BBQ and the current Golden Eagles were available for autographs throughout the event.
There were a multitude of games and competitions for the children in attendance to participate in and senior center Chris Otule filmed the latest episode of his award-winning "Otule Asks" web series for GoMarquette.com.
