After an in-home visit from new Marquette head coach Steve Wojciechowski on Thursday night, Sun Prairie junior Nick Noskowiak appears even more impressed with the direction the Golden Eagles’ program could take in the coming years.

“I really, really like Coach Wojciechowski,” Noskowiak said. “Everything he had to say I absolutely loved. I love the direction that he’s going to put Marquette in. I could definitely see myself playing for him. I’m really looking forward to building a better relationship with (him).

“I’m kind of waiting to see how (my recruitment) all plays out, but I’d definitely say (Marquette is) at the top of my list.”

Noskowiak, who averaged 20 points per game for the Cardinals this season, committed to Marquette last April but opened his recruitment back up last week after former Golden Eagles coach Buzz Williams departed for Virginia Tech.

Wojciechowski played for Duke from 1994-98 and has been on the Blue Devils’ coaching staff since 1999.

He was in Sun Prairie Thursday night and watched Noskowiak work out before heading over to the junior guard’s house.

“He sees me as a decision maker on the court,” Noskowiak said. “When watching me work out today, he said he saw a lot of himself in me when he played point guard for Duke. But above everything, he saw in me the ability to make my teammates better.”

Noskowiak plays AAU basketball in Milwaukee and plans to take a visit to Marquette in the near future.

He has also received offers from Illinois, Creighton and Xavier since opening up his recruitment. Noskowiak is expecting another in-home visit from the Musketeers on Friday.

He said Wisconsin showed interested in him before he committed to Marquette last year, but he hasn’t heard from the Badgers since opening up his recruitment.

Yeah... this is BADGER Beat. Take the Marquette articles elsewhere. i understand though, they have nothing better to do than read in March/April. :)


Nick would be a great addition to MU. They sorely need a playmaking guard, who is a great passer that cam shoot the 3, and also has a defensive mind set. Who better to coach him than Steve W.
