The Marquette Golden Eagles men's basketball team (formerly the Marquette Warriors) represents Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Marquette currently competes in the Big East. It last played in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament in 2013. Marquette maintains rivalries and highly anticipated games with several other schools, including the University of Wisconsin–Madison, University of Louisville, University of Notre Dame, University of Pittsburgh, and DePaul University. The team plays its home games at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in downtown Milwaukee, where the Milwaukee Bucks NBA team also plays. Despite only having 8,000 undergraduates, Marquette was ranked 10th in average attendance among NCAA Division 1 teams in 2009 and 2010.

Marquette is the only university to spurn an NCAA invite and did so due to a low seeding in the 1970 NCAA Tournament and having to travel. They were ranked 8th in the country at the time and were one of the favorites to win the NCAA championship. They were invited to the 1970 NIT which they won. The NCAA later instituted a rule which forbid an NCAA Division I level men's basketball team from spurning an NCAA bid for an NIT bid. An antitrust case by the NIT ensued over this issue, and the NCAA settled out of court.
