Butler Bulldogs

After losing to the Providence Friars, the Butler Bulldogs pulled off a three-point victory over the Villanova Wildcats. They are looking to start another run with the momentum that they gained but they would need a lot to go ahead the Marquette Golden Eagles that are 11-1 at the Fiserv Forum. Baldwin has been leading the team as he contributes across the board with 16 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1 steal per game. McDermott is his best tandem as he averages 12.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. Manning the paint is Nze who does 9.5 points and 6.7 rebounds per match.

Marquette Golden Eagles

This is payback time for the Golden Eagles as they were defeated by the Bulldogs in their last encounter just this January 24 in overtime fashion. This time around, they are the hosts and will look to reclaim their place in the Big East. Since the loss, they are on back-to-back victories including an overtime win against the Xavier Musketeers and the latest was a 4-point victory against DePaul. Howard has been on the radar of NBA Scouts as he is carrying the Golden Eagles in his back with 27.9 points per game. Still, this team needs to back him up to free him even more in the offensive end.
