What to Know
The Marquette Golden Eagles will take on the #13 Butler Bulldogs at 9 p.m. ET on Friday at Hinkle Fieldhouse. Marquette is cruising in on a three-game winning streak while Butler is stumbling in off of three consecutive losses.
The Golden Eagles strolled past the St. John's Red Storm with points to spare on Tuesday, taking the contest 82-68. It was another big night for G Markus Howard, who had 32 points in addition to six rebounds. Howard's night made it three games in a row now in which he has scored at least 32 points.
Meanwhile, Butler received a tough blow on Tuesday as they fell 76-61 to the Villanova Wildcats. Butler's loss came about despite a quality game from F Bryce Nze, who dropped a double-double on 12 boards and 11 points along with five assists. Nze had trouble finding his footing against the DePaul Blue Demons on Saturday, so this was a step in the right direction.
Marquette's win brought them up to 14-5 while Butler's defeat pulled them down to 15-4. A pair of offensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Marquette rank 30th in college basketball when it comes to points per game, with 77.8 on average. Butler has displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they enter the game with 46.70% field goal percentage, good for 29th best in college basketball. We'll find out if either of these strengths ends up making the difference in the matchup.
