Marquette Game Thread 1/26/19

Only 2 teams in the BE with a winning conference record at this point.
X plays one of them today.

KenPom projects a Marquette win - 73-71.
After Wednesday night's performance by X, I hope it is that close.

Marquette has the best rated defense in BE conference play while X is 8th in offense in conference play and is dead last in 3 pt shooting %.
Great defense against a bad offense. Doesn't bode well.

FT are nice but need to score from field
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

With John having 2 fouls, Hankins needs to get the ball in the post.
They don't have anyone that can guard him

Strong 1st 10 minutes for X.
Their defense is solid, it's just that Marquette is one damn good shooting team from 3.
They are 4-5 to start.
Frankly, I think X plays better with Q on the bench.
Scruggs is playing confidently at the point and is just a much better player than Q.
