The Wisconsin Badgers are off to a 5-2 start this college basketball season, coming off of two losses in their last three games. They lost their last outing against Wake Forest, and lost to Kansas as well in their recent rough patch, with a win over USC coming in between those games. Here, Wisconsin looks to score an in-state rivalry win over Marquette to get back on track.
For Wisconsin, the key to this game is going to be finding a way to generate some offense. The Badgers have averaged 64.4 points per game offensively, which is not good enough against higher quality opponents like Marquette.
Marquette Golden Eagles
The Marquette Golden Eagles have won six of their first eight games to start this season. That has included a 5-0 home record, along with an impressive win over the Baylor Bears. Here, the Golden Eagles are looking for their fourth straight win, using their superior offense to get them there.
This season, Marquette is shooting 48% from the floor as a team, nearly 10% higher than Wisconsin so far this year. Their superior ball movement will be their key to this game, as they should be better equipped to generate quality shots with their passing than their opponent.
