Marquette Golden Eagles
The Marquette Golden Eagles are off to a good start winning their games against Purdue and Loyola-Maryland. Against Purdue, Kobe McEwen looked solid after a bad first game with 23 points, five rebounds, four assists and one block. He was a solid key in beating Purdue along with Markus Howard who had 18 points, four rebounds and three assists. The emergence of McEwen is a relief to Howard as he single-handedly disposed of Loyola-Maryland with 38 points. Going to this game against Wisconsin, they look prepared to pull an upset and it will be interesting how McEwen will follow up after a good second game. A third scorer in the team that could step up would be a huge factor and Sacar Anim should level up his game.
Players to Watch: M. Howard (11.8 PPG, 2.6 RPG, 1.8 APG, 1.2 SPG), K. McEwen (9.2 PPG, 2.4 RPG, 2 APG), S. Anim (8.6 PPG, 2.6 RPG, 1.2 APG)
Suffering an overtime loss against St. Mary’s Gaels, Wisconsin Badgers went forward and beat Eastern Illinois Panthers and McNeese St. Cowboys convincingly. Heading to this game against Marquette, the team looked great under the on-court leadership of Brad Davison who is coming from a 24-point performance. In the tournament, he has averaged 16 points, 3.8 rebounds. 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals per night. A good sight to see were players like Aleem Ford and Brevin Prizi stepping up as significant contributors. Ford and Pritzi combined for 29 points in the previous game. Against Marquette, they have to be unpredictable and players like Ford, Pritzi and King should help in confusing the defense to free up Brad Davison to operate on the opponent’s defense.
Players to Watch: B. Davison (16 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 2 APG, 1.3 SPG), N. Reuvers (12.5 PPG, 4.8 RPG), K. King (12 PPF, 3.3 RPG, 4.3 APG).

This promises to be a close game but Top Online Sportsbook has Wisconsin on the advantage over Marquette. For Wisconsin, it would be Davidson leading the team but he needs players to help him with the scoring load. If Howard and McEwen manage to put up good numbers, huge chances that Marquette will be on top of this game. Winner of this game moves forward to a three-game winning streak.
