As expected, Marquette Golden Eagles big man Chris Otule was granted a 6th year of eligibility this coming season.
Otule missed most of his 2nd and 4th seasons due to injury. He’s coming off an outstanding season that saw him average 5.1 points and 3.5 rebounds in 35 games.
Marquette will face St. John’s on Feb. 1 at Madison Square Garden on the eve of the Super Bowl. It’s part of “Super Saturday Hoops”, a college basketball doubleheader and will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1. That game will tip at 11:30am and be followed by Michigan State and Georgetown at 2pm.
The Super Bowl will be played the next day in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
