We really don’t foresee a heck of a lot of upsets in the Big East Tournament, especially those of the epic variety. It wouldn’t be a massive shock if Head Coach Mike Bray’s team went into play at MSG for the second straight day and came up with a victory against Marquette, but it would definitely classify as an upset. The defense for the Irish simply has to be better than it has been of late. The team allowed 61 last night to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in a good, yet not great effort, and it allowed 73 the game before to the Louisville Cardinals. This really is as much of a bet against Marquette as anything else, though. The Golden Eagles feel like they have been putting this together with smoke and mirrors this year. Head Coach Buzz Williams has done a great job putting this team together, but these last two road games of the year, narrow escapes against the Scarlet Knights and the seemingly hapless St. John’s Red Storm are worrisome. Marquette doesn’t have a great history of playing here at Madison Square Garden, and we don’t think that it is ready for this moment on Thursday night. Roll with Notre Dame to post a second straight ‘W’.
