Marquette, BIG EAST respond to possible quarantines this season

For many college basketball programs, the first week of November kicks off the final stretch of preparation for their upcoming season.

However, for Marquette men’s and women’s basketball, it will mark the end of their 14-day quarantine, which began Oct. 21 after a member of each program tested positive for COVID-19. Due to this, Marquette coaches and players had different responses regarding the pandemic based on personal experience when talking during BIG EAST media days Oct. 28 and Oct. 29, as both programs were quarantined Oct. 21.

BIG EAST Commissioner Val Ackerman mentioned during both the BIG EAST men’s and women’s basketball media days that the conference is relying on the Center for Disease Control and local public health officials for testing and quarantine guidelines.
