Marquette opens -6 vs. SHU
« on: January 11, 2019, 04:13:05 PM »
In line with Kenpom and about what I would have expected. Would have guessed 5.5.

I would think that moves even lower. I love us to cover that spread. Obviously wearing the goggles but I think our home court advantage gives us much more than average and more than Vegas gives us credit for
Down 5 with 1 second left, doable

Personally think we match-up with Seton Hall very well. Only 1 true three point threat. Their bigs are of the slower banger variety which means Joey, Theo, and Ed don't need to spend as much time on the perimeter. We have no one who can stop Powell but I think Anim with lots of help defense can at least keep him from exploding. Think Cale is the xfactor, keep him in check along with Powell and I think this could end up a laugher

Completely agree. We could lose the game if we're missing shots or if Powell goes nuts. But overall I like the matchup, especially defensively. SJU, CU and Nova are the worst matchups for our defense because they can spread us out and beat us off the dribble. I don't see that being a huge issue against the rest of the conference.

Anyone else concerned about a Creighton hangover? Hopefully we come out focused. Home crowd with at least some students back should help, though the crowds have been good over break.

Absolutely. Hoping there aren't shades of Providence 2017.

I'm not sure how chuffed up our guys could be about a team dropping over 100 on us, even if we did end up winning.

This team is focused! We need Sam and Joey to go off and Markus hit his averages.   But no BEast game will be easy.

The only time I ever get worried about a game is when we start hearing how good of a matchup a team is for Marquette.  South Carolina was supposed to be a good matchup for MU in the NCAA Tournament because they couldn't score and there was no way they could hold our potent offense under 70 so we were going to win.  St. John's has only 1 guy over 6'5" and hasn't beaten anybody so we'll just eat them up down low.  Indiana was young and inexperienced and playing their first big game so we were going to come in and be the experienced group that smokes them to welcome them to the big leagues like Iowa did to us Hank's year.

You don't play your opponent you play yourself.  What I like about this team is we don't have 1 Hauser, we have 2.  Players like the Hausers show up every night, even if they're not scoring the ball a ton.  I'm worried less about how we match up with Seton Hall and more about how we play.  If Marquette takes care of the ball and continues to rebound the ball well we'll win.

If we win all the way through providence at home what can we possibly expect for a ranking?   12?

Looking forward to another very entertaining game. Will be a tough test but we should end up on top in the end.

Well 16 was obviously our highest of the ceiling so no point in worrying about that question.

Line moved a touch to -6.5. Depends on which bookmaker you are looking at.
Should be another good crowd at Fiserv Forum. 16K plus.

*I didn't feel the need to start a new topic. Yet, I hope those see it who is going to the game on Marquette game on Saturday. Parking will be tough on Saturday! Wave game at UWM Panther Arena. Also, Volleyball at the Wisconsin Center. Seems like there is a million 12-18  years olds every year, all from the midwest in town for that weekend event.*

Also, let's face it .. Creighton lost that game more than MU won it.   MU won on two miracles, maybe three if you count 53 from Marcus. 

I mean, yay and everything, but MU was preposterously thisclose to having a very quiet flight home, being yelled at for letting an opponent score 85 and shoot 51%. 

Buzz (?) used to say celebrate until midnight, then back to work.  Wojo had plenty of material to slice that down an hour.

Honestly, Chartouny missing the first layup was a miracle too. If he makes that attempt, they inbound normally, we foul, and we likely lose at the line or need a 60-footer to tie. Because he missed, it left that 0.8 which made Cashaw think the long pass was a safe option.

6 points seems like a lot to me. Seton Hall has been darn tough this season, including a couple of impressive ones on the road.

I'll take a 1-point win or a 31-point win or any win in between.

Ordinarily I'd agree but this team has a different mental make up this season IMO.

Markus Made the plays we had to.

Fixed.  Markus single-handedly carried us to victory in that game.  Pure individual talent on display.  He was in the zone, and when's he's in that zone, there have been few other players that can match his efficiency/production.

Still believe the Wisconsin win was our most impressive win of the year, because Markus was really pretty bad in that game, and we found a way to win.  Can't count/rely on 40 points halves like what happened against Buffalo, and 53 point games to win in OT at CU.
