The Golden Eagles are relevant again thanks to the approach of head coach Carolyn Kieger, who has back-to-back 20-win seasons after going just 9-22 her first year in 2014-15. Marquette is primed for another move up the charts with all five starters returning, led by Big East player of the year Allazia Blockton (19.1 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 39 percent shooting from 3 and 51 percent shooting overall). The offense is super productive (17th in the nation at more than 80 points per contest) and takes care of the ball, totaling 108 more assists than turnovers last year. The team also dealt with the absence of transfer Tori McCoy, who has a condition that will eventually require a kidney transplant.
