#8 Seed: A phenomenal scoring team, the 2002/03 Marquette Golden Eagles gave their fans an unexpected joyride on their way to their first Final Four since Al Maguire's championship run. South Chicago Suburban legend Dwayne Wade led the way, averaging over 21 points per game.  Warrior coach Tom Crean's squad took and made high quality shots, firing impressively from the 3 and the free throw line.  Marquette's dream season came to an abrupt end in their Final Four matchup against Kansas.  Roy Williams Kansas Jay Hawks put on a dominant performance, building an insurmountable 59-30 halftime lead, thus ending a great season and run for Marquette and its loyal fanbase.
