Men’s basketball practices in front of fans with season looming

With the 2021-22 season just three weeks away, the Marquette men’s basketball team checked off another first on the preseason checklist.

Last Thursday in front of season ticket holders, the Golden Eagles practiced inside Fiserv Forum for the first time during the Shaka Smart Era.

“It’s the first time I’ve seen the court (down),” redshirt first-year guard Tyler Kolek said. “I haven’t (even) seen our court either. When I came in here for the first time nothing was down, we just saw the locker rooms. Just walking through the tunnel, you get a little starstruck seeing all our colors and everything like that.
