It’s difficult to fathom, but a Marquette team that started off the year at a modest 7-3 with a loss to the Wisconsin Green Bay Phoenix is all of a sudden in the running for a Top 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament. How have the Golden Eagles done it? It certainly isn’t the product of the offense, which is averaging 69.4 points per game, and it isn’t necessarily the defense either. Averaging 62.5 points per game allowed is good, but it’s not great by Big East standards. It really has just been that “it” factor. The team is a perfect 15-0 SU at home, and this is the home finale against a Notre Dame team that probably is set to take its foot off of the gas pedal at some point in the near future. The Irish have picked up back to back huge wins against the Pittsburgh Panthers and the Cincinnati Bearcats, and they have done so by playing some stout defense. Unfortunately for Notre Dame, these games have been the anomaly, and we think that the team is going to revert back to its old ways of playing inefficient defense for Head Coach Mike Bray. Go with the Golden Eagles to fly high on Saturday in what should be the game to ensure that they are going to be getting a double bye in the Big East Tournament.
