1993-94 Season

The Marquette Warriors finished the season 24-9 overall and 10-2 in the Great Midwest Conference. That record was good for first place in the Great Midwest Conference, giving Marquette the first conference championship in school history. Marquette also faced a school-record nine opponents ranked in the top-25, winning five of those contests.

Jim McIlvaine's season total of 142 blocked shots has only been surpassed by four teams in school history. As one would expect, the 1993-94 team's total of 198 blocked shots ranks first all-time in school history, as does their total of 580 assists. Tony Miller is primarily responsible for the assist record, as he accounted for 274 of those assists. Marquette led the nation and set an NCAA record for field-goal percentage defense with a mark on the season of 35.8% (Currently 2nd all-time in NCAA History). Marquette also finished the season ranked in both the AP poll (21st) and CNN/USA Today Poll (17th) for the first time in 15 years.

Several Members of the 93-94 team qualified for post-season honors:
Abel Joseph Great Midwest All-Academic Team
Damon Key All-Great Midwest Second Team
Jim McIlvaine Great Midwest Player of the Year
Tony Miller All-Great Midwest Second Team
Kevin O'Neill Ray Meyer Coach of the Year
