Marquette Basketball
Predictions Update
Nov 8, 2022
•   After beating Radford 79-69 yesterday, Marquette is now projected to finish the regular season 15-15 (8-12 Big East).
•   The odds that the Golden Eagles make the NCAA tournament are down to 23%, a decrease of 5% since yesterday.
•   We currently rank Marquette as the #77 team in the country, and the #8 team in the Big East.
•   Next game: Thu, Nov 10 vs. #319 Central Mich. Our power ratings give the Golden Eagles a 94% chance to win.
Bracketology Projections
Make NCAA Tournament 23%   
Get Automatic NCAA Bid 3%   
Projected Seed if selected 10
•   Marquette probably won't get an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, although they have an outside shot.
•   As for an automatic bid ... Marquette has a 3% chance to win the conference tournament. The outlook is bleak, but stranger things have happened.
•   We project the Golden Eagles with a 3% chance to make the Sweet Sixteen, but essentially no chance to reach the Final Four.

Not quite sure where this info is coming from, but I would imagine a win at Purdue would alter their data significantly.

Tough to read into any projections like this early in a season with so many unknowns, but it will be interesting to see how this changes from week to week based on single game results.

Marquette also 1-9 against Purdue All Time.  Road games can be impossible. Marquette will likely be an underdog in Vegas as well.

Classic slow vs. fast tempo matchup. If MU can jump on them early and make Purdue play from behind, we have a chance. A game of attrition would be bad news for MU.

Speed them up, get Edey uncomfortable, and hit some shots. Let's go!

Purdue
is
very
beatable.

Listen to the Scoopers who have written about tempo and not getting cheap fouls on Edey. Obviously it will be a challenge but we're not playing the Bucks.  Control tempo, collective rebound, speed them up, force sone turns, get the three ball cooking and attack them all over the floor.

Purdue is 97-11 at Mackey in its last 108 games. Unstoppable big against the lack of our interior and competent guards. Not getting my hopes up.

I believe we can (and will) beat Purdue.  Edey will be a one-man wrecking crew for them, but they have young guards and I think our guards/O-Max will give them trouble.  The best way we can slow Edey is to apply intense ball pressure on their guards and make it difficult for them to make quality post-entry passes.

I think we go 10 deep tomorrow night and see a lot of Chase Ross, Sean Jones, and Stevie rotating onto their guards.  The road game factor is the part that gives me pause on a victory, yet I think we pull an upset.

We agree on the way MU is going to have to play.   I hope Wrightsil is healthy.    And I think MU needs all 11.       
Speed them up, pressure the guards.    When Edey gets the ball under the basket, let him score.    Don't pointlessly foul him in a vain attempt to stop a dunk.  Stay out of foul trouble.     Front him.    Use athleticism and jumping ability to disrupt lob passes to him.  Hope MU can make it rain from 3.

On the road at Mackey that’s likely Goose.  Going to the game anyway.  Once in a while as a fan you get to see a great road win in person.  I’m hoping this is one of those times.

Goose, what do you expect our line-up to be when Oso is off the floor?  How can we muck this up a bit and get them to kick the rock away like Illinois did last year?

So a neutral-court victory over a crappy Georgia Tech team got us a projected 2 more wins and a 50/50 shot at an NCAAT bid? Nice!

When you beat Georgia Tech by 24 when the spread was 5ish. I implies that you will win more games in the future.

We're currently a similar team to last year with bad luck.

That's even more of a bump than I expected.
I do question how we are ranked 19 spots ahead of Wisconsin. If that's the case, I hope that there's a lot of chalk in the air Saturday.

I think outlier performances will skew the data a bit early on due to small sample size.

I hope the team is ignoring a potential #20 ranking and keeps remembering they were picked 9th in the Big East.

If a 19-12 (12-8) Big East record is only a 63% chance of making it, I gotta say I don't like our odds of getting in this year.

19-12, 12-8 would likely be the bubble this year. I'd put the over/under on Big East bids at 4.5 right now. Probably lean the under with a couple close NIT teams.

If that proves to be true the a ton would have to go right for MU to get in and I don't understand why that is an opinion that gets such fierce pushback.  Not saying it is impossible but having to go 12-8 or 13-7 to get in seems like a long shot.  Idk.

Very hard to doubt your opinion here, for obvious reasons.

There are only 3 teams on the schedule that have a better KenPom ranking than UW, so 6 games total versus UConn, Creighton, and X.

StJ, Nova, SH, Providence and ND are all currently in the top 75, so that’s 9 additional games against current top 75 teams.

Then there’s Butler&DePaul in the top 100 and the ugly outlier Gtown around 150ish, so 6 games there.

Let’s make an educated guess and say 5 wins in the 6 games versus the bottom tier, 4/5 wins versus the middle tier, and conservatively 1 win versus the top tier.
That’s right around that 10/11 win mark in conference.
IMO that middle tier of 9 games versus  current KenPom teams lower than Marquette currently in the top 75 (which includes ND) will likely decide MUs ncaa fate. Win 5/6 of those 9 and they should be sitting pretty.

It is a bit difficult to buy that a 12-8 conference season wouldn’t be enough in a year when Marquette is ranked in the top 40/45 going into conference play.

When do the first NET rankings come out? It’s typically early December no?

Because based on this season's data, Marquette has been the second-best team in the Big East and is very safely in the top-four. It's worth looking at this piece that I wrote about unbiased data this season. While things could change, and the Big East hasn't been good, that likely benefits Marquette because we have a schedule that is weak compared to how our team has performed. Using this season's data on T-Rank, we are favored to win every game but four. We are underdogs in both UConn games and on the road at Xavier (+0.7) and Creighton (+2.4) Obviously the projected record wouldn't match completely because of percentages, but that's a raw favorite record of 24-7 (16-4) come the Big East Tournament.

In this Big East, looking at how bad St. John's, Providence, Villanova, DePaul, and Georgetown have been, 12 or 13 wins feels like a pretty low bar to clear. I think a number of people are both underrating how good Marquette has been while overrating how good the rest of the league is.

This could be the perfect league for this young team to develop while still being able to win and get to the NCAA tournament.  A down year for the conference with an ascending young team seems like a great opportunity.  Hopefully that’s the case. 

Let’s beat ND and go into conference play on a high note.

The Baylor game was quite the outlier. If we do that 1 out of every 9 games we play this season I will be absolutely floored. That’s boosting our current year numbers quite a bit.

Looks like they docked us one Big East game because of that 2nd half performance.
Seems excessive.
