Why Marquette Will Win
It’s been a good run for Marquette over the last several weeks with four wins in the last five games even though it’s been a struggle from three.
The Golden Eagles are outstanding at getting to the free throw line and making them, and they’re a killer on the boards – at least at the defensive end. Considering Georgetown struggles with its shooting consistency, and with the way it turned the ball over way, way too often, but ….
Why Georgetown Will Win
Marquette is just as inept when it comes to turnovers and forcing mistakes. It gives up way too many easy points and doesn’t do enough to generate easy points. It’s also going against one of the few teams in the Big East that can hang on the boards.
The Hoyas can rebound, too, averaging a Big East-high 40 per game.
Like Marquette, they’re also terrific when they’re on the free throw line. They don’t get there quite as often, but they’re a bit better on the line and a bit better from three.
What’s Going To Happen
The two teams aren’t mirror images of each other, but they do a whole lot of things the same. Marquette won the first meeting 64-60 back at the beginning of January mostly by getting to the free throw line a whole lot more.
Expect that to be the difference again.
Neither team will do much from three and scoring at times will be like pulling teeth, but the Golden Eagles will get at least five more free throws.
