Marquette Interviews: Vander Blue and Buzz Williams


Vander Blue, Kenny Kadji, Durand ScottWASHINGTON, DC – Marquette has a chance to lay down a marker for the new Big East on Saturday when they take on a conference rival that won’t be one after this season in Syracuse.

Ahead of the game, Ian Eagle caught up with Marquette head coach Buzz Williams and star guard Vander Blue.
