This matchup features the Marquette Golden Eagles out of the Big East and the second ranked Kansas Jayhawks out of the Big 12. They will be facing off in the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off with the winner advancing to the championship game and the loser playing in the third place game on Thursday.
The Golden Eagles and the Jayhawks last met in 2003 and the Jayhawks ended up winning 94-61. This should be an early test for both teams to see where they are at and where they can improve as the season creeps closer to the start of conference play.
Marquette Golden Eagles
The Golden Eagles have started the season 3-1 with their only loss coming in a blowout to the Indiana Hoosiers. They will now have a chance to prove they can be a contender when they play the second ranked Jayhawks.
The Golden Eagles are averaging 76.5 points through the first four games of the season. They are shooting 44.6% from the field as a team. An area they need to improve, is their three point shooting. Especially against a team like Kansas, they will definitely need to knock down more than 33.6% of their deep range shots to upset a very talented Kansas squad.
The Golden Eagles do a great job to contest their opponents shots. They are allowing their opponents to shoot just 35.6% from the field. Given how good Kansas shoots the ball, they need to limit their three point shooting, force some turnovers, and get out on the break to score some easy buckets.
Kansas already has a top ten win this year when they defeated Michigan State on a neutral floor to open the season. They need to be ready for this game because they are likely to get Marquette’s best shot.
The Jayhawks are shooting lights out through the first three games of the season. They are shooting 48.7% from the field and 46.9% from behind the arc. They are averaging 88.3 points per game, led by Lagerald Vick, who is averaging 22.3 points per game.
Defensively, the Jayhawks are allowing 77 points per game. This is a bit high for a team as good as Kansas, so expect them to hunker down on defense and get the stops they need.
