Marquette Golden Eagles
Marquette got a Big East-high 52 points from their sophomore Markus Howard this week in an overtime win over Providence.
Howard got 42 in regulation and ten in overtime on 11-for-17 from three and 17-for-29 from the field, overall. He made all seven of his free throws.
‘Quette is 2–1 in the conference after losing its first game to Xavier at home, albeit by just four points. The Eagles get most of the conference bullies early. Obviously they have to go to the conference favorite in this game. Next week, they’ll host #21 Seton Hall.
This is Villanova’s first game since being upset at Hinkle Fieldhouse last Saturday. The ‘Cats are 1–1 in the conference and still #3 in the country, despite their first loss of the season.
But Butler was nutty from beyond the arc last week. Villanova played all right, especially Jalen Brunson, who scored 31 points on 12-of-21 from the field. He still leads the team in scoring, even with Mikal Bridges torching just about every opponent he sees this season. Brunson is just under 60 percent from the field now and a shade under 50 percent from three (49.2).
The Big East is not the worst major conference out there, but Villanova is still the clearest conference favorite, despite the early loss. It speaks to how well-rounded and, quite frankly, dominant the Wildcats are.

Free Marquette vs. Villanova NCAAB Prediction: Villanova puts on an offensive clinic in a big win.
Marquette can really score and it is going to be tempted to run and score with the Wildcats. That’s not a winning formula over 40 minutes against this team. Until Villanova faces an opponent that will dig in and defend harder than how it plays offense, I doubt it will lose again.
