The keys to winning today are the same obvious things for winning every game. Defend, rebound-limit second chance opps, ball security and going to need make shots.
My one comment is this: now is the time to seize this opportunity. Most favorable match-up in last 4 trips. We competed brilliantly against Purdue, FSU, Arkansas but their size & talent just wore us down by the end of the game. Watching FSU just dump ball in the paint to their 2 7fters and bully ball us in Hartford down the stretch was painful.
Marquette does not have the same NBA talent or NBA-adjacent talent on its roster that those 3 teams had; full-stop. Not even close, actually. (Of course, neither do we). They also only have a couple seniors on the roster and no grad transfers.

Our OOC schedule has prepared us for this. We've seen it. Today is our day. Just. Win.
