The Golden Eagles had to say goodbye to Markus Howard, one of the best college basketball players of the last decade.
It’s not all bad news, however, as it brings a top 20 recruiting class and one of the most sought-after transfers to DJ Carton from the state of Ohio. Based on the KenPom ratings, no major decline is expected (probably 34. opposite 31. last season). . Howard had the highest usage rate of any college basketball player last season. So it will be interesting to see how Marquette will take a team-based approach to crime in the future.
However, with the addition of cardboard, the golden eagles should improve defense significantly. KenPom got Marquette from 73. Defense on the 24th. brought in terms of efficiency.
Last season, Wisconsin was well on its way before scooping eight straight wins to end the season. This run resulted in a top 4 ranking as there are almost all of the key contributors this season.
The story of the Badgers’ late run was their defense, which made it 17th in terms of defensive efficiency. Took place. The offensive struggled at times, however, and only ended up with the sixth best offensive efficiency in the Big Ten, largely due to their reliance on the 3-point shot. Of all the badger points 39. 8% points came behind the arch last year, which was the highest mark in the Big Ten.
The key to the badgers in this game is a high quality appearance. Marquette’s defense has improved a lot, as these two lost 77 points early last season. If Wisconsin doesn’t shoot a high percentage, Milwaukee could be a long night.
I only projected Wisconsin as -0. 79 favorites on the street so I think the golden eagles have a value at 3. 5.
The Battle of I-94 makes headlines with the No.. 4 Wisconsin Badgers travel to Marquette to face the Golden Eagles.
Marquette looks a little different this year without Markus Howard. Howard had the highest usage rate in the country in 2019, but coach Steve Wojciechowski found a solid replacement to get a good chunk of that with Ohio State Transfer D.. J. . carton.
Carton is a quick guardian who will be a force in the Great East, and while familiar with the badger backcourt from his Big Ten game, he cannot do it on his own. This is a badger defense that was in the top 20 units in 2019 and is currently number one. 4 in 2020.
The box is checked by the likes of D’Mitrik Trice and Brad Davison, and I envision problems for Marquette’s formidable newcomer Dawson Garcia, who has to face Wiscy Big Nate Reuvers.
Garcia is a little too skinny to handle the seasoned reuvers who have some of the best footwork and shot blocking skills in the country.
There was a click on the Badgers in February and March, and I think this is one place where the club makes its early national statement. Wisconsin won the last eight games last season and took the Big Ten title in the regular season.
This season seems like an expansion for one of the hottest teams in college ball, bringing almost all of the key contributors back to the 2019 version.
Wisconsin will control the pace – ranking 346 in the country this year – and claim an impressive road win. I like bucky up to -5.
The Oregon Ducks suffered a heavy loss to the Missouri Tigers on Wednesday night. They only shot 19:42 out of the bow at Missouri’s 21:34. The line closed at Oregon -3 and lost at eight.
I’m expecting a big bounce back game from the Ducks tonight though. In Oregon, Payton Prichard is very much missing, but the Seton Hall Pirates are in free fall.
Seton Hall is 1-2 to start the season. In their first three games, the pirates flipped the ball nine, 15 and 14 times. Taking into account the total of 35 assists, this is a less than outstanding performance . 92 Assist-to-Turnover Ratio.
Meanwhile, Oregon doesn’t flip the ball. It was the top 80 in sales percentage last season and is 27th this season. Place per game per KenPom. However, the pirates fall outside the top 150 in percentage of opposing sales.
Additionally, the Oregon offense is still pretty effective. Dana Altman’s team (2019-20) ranked sixth in the nation in KenPom’s offensive efficiency. Oregon had a ton of roster sales, but it only scored 75 points on a Missouri defense that is higher than Seton Hall in KenPom defensive efficiency.
All in all, I expect Oregon to have more valuable properties than Seton Hall. In addition, Altman’s squad is favorites in their last 20 games, 15-5 against the spread, while Kevin Willard’s team are only 1-4 ahead in their last five games.
I see the ducks take a hard-fought victory and set that line on Oregon -2.
