Joe Lunardi ESPN has Marquette as a  # 6 Seed Playing # 11 Pittsburgh in Denver in the South Louisville Region. Winner plays # 3 Seed Texas # 14 Seed Cornell Winner

Slightly convinced Lunardi looks at what could be an intriguing matchup when doing these early brackets. Playing Greg w/ a chance to play Shaka's old team.

That or i'm just looking to hard into this.

ESPN Which Team has surprised You in a good way Why
Medcalf: I'll take Marquette here. Shaka Smart's squad was picked to finish ninth in the Big East, over Georgetown (10th) and DePaul (11th), in the preseason poll. The Golden Eagles lost their top two scorers from last season (Darryl Morsell and Justin Lewis) after reaching the NCAA tournament in Smart's first season. In his second, they're off to a 5-1 start in Big East play, with two of their four overall losses (Providence, Wisconsin) unfolding in overtime. They also have a five-point road loss to Purdue. But, Marquette has just one loss since Dec. 3. In a crowded conference, it's easy to overlook its success thus far. But this team is playing good, entertaining basketball -- sixth in adjusted offensive efficiency on KenPom -- right now. PS Edit This was written yesterday. Marquette is # 4 in adjusted offensive efficiency on KenPom today

Torvik says that the closest comp to this year's team is the 2017 MU team.   The 2018 MU team is also in the top 10 comparable teams

What's your reasoning behind that?

Being a 4 or better should be the goal.  13 seeds are 'typically' where the talent disparity is noticable. 5/12s have shown to be tossups.

It's about the second/third round matchups. Playing into a 3 and 2 and not seeing a 1 until the E8 can be an easier road, especially as upsets (and thus easier paths) are more likely for those 3s and 2s than 1s.

I guess I'm mostly interested in winning game 1 and worrying about a 2nd round matchup if we get there.

There's an argument for 6 there too, but the data doesn't bear it out. The theory goes that you'd rather see the worst qualifying high majors (typically 11s) than the best mid-majors. At one point, I think 12s on the whole were doing better than 11s, which was where the 5/12 narrative came from, but over time that's shifted back. Here's the historic seed vs seed data:

I want Marquette to be the highest seed possible, with the exception that I'd rather be a 10 than an 8 or 9.

If we keep playing like this, we won't have to worry about 8, 9 or 10.
