Marquette announced some major news on Monday.
The Big East program will lose brothers Sam and Joey Hauser to transfer.
Sam Hauser, a 6-foot-8 junior forward, was Marquette’s second-leading scorer at 14.9 points per game along with 7.2 rebounds per game.
Joey Hauser, a 6-9 freshman, averaged 9.7 points and 5.3 rebounds.
Marquette star Markus Howard, the reigning Big East Player of the Year, previously announced he would return for his senior season. Howard averaged 25.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.9 assists.
Marquette likely would have been the favorite to win the Big East had all three players returned. Now the league appears more wide open, with Villanova, Seton Hall, Georgetown and Creighton all expected to have strong teams.
