  • UConn now jumped to 26-3 after beating up on Seton Hall in Storrs, game ended with a score of 91-61. The Huskies got their revenge on the Pirates in a big way, and they’ll look to prevent allowing the Golden Eagles to do the same here in Milwaukee. Connecticut is scoring 81.6 points per game, on 49.7% shooting, while allowing 72.7 ppg, and they’re currently first in the Big East with a 14-1 record in conference play. The Huskies are 9-1 over their previous ten games, and they’re 6-3 on the road this season. This is a great team having a great season and they will compete against anyone that steps on the court with them.

UConn Team Notes

  • Dan Hurley’s group plays methodically, averaging 68.7 possessions per game (279th), and they’ve knocked down 36.0% of their three-point attempts.

  • Veteran guard Tristen Newton recorded a triple-double in the win over Villanova, and he leads Connecticut in scoring (15.3), rebounding (7.1) and assists (6.0), while scoring 15.3 ppg

The Marquette Team Preview

  • Marquette moved to 22-7 after falling to Creighton in Omaha, 89-75. The Golden Eagles let the Blue Jays pull away in the second half, and they’ll attempt to bounce back here against the Huskies. Marquette is scoring 79.4 points per game, on 48.3% shooting, while allowing 67.1 ppg, and they’re currently second in the Big East with a 9-3 record in league play. The Golden Eagles are 8-2 over their last ten games, and they’re 14-1 in Milwaukee this season. This Marquette team is also dangerous on the court, and cannot be underestimated.

Marquette Team Notes

  • Shaka Smart’s squad leans on their defense and moves at a methodical pace, averaging 71.7 possessions per game (157th), and they’ve shot 35.3% from beyond the arc.

  • Senior guard Tyler Kolek (15.0 ppg, 7.6 rpg) won’t be available for this high stakes contests, and that could prove to be crucial here versus UConn.

💎 UCONN -5.5 -110 ( 1u )

  • The guy that taught me everything about Sports Betting always told me about Shaka Smart and how he created the Havoc Press at VCU, and I’ve been a huge supporter of him ever since, but going through this March without Tyler Kolek is going to be a very tough and interested to see what he does. The guard’s absence was clear as day in Omaha versus Creighton, and although the Golden Eagles will be at home this time they will still be tested with the Huskies coming to the house. Connecticut controlled the entire game in Hartford last month, and with their eyes on that number-one overall seed, a road win here in Milwaukee would be huge. Marquette showing up for senior night isn’t too hard to believe, but they’re shorthanded, but we're talking about the defending national champions who are playing amazing basketball, right now. Let’s trust UConn for this huge ranked Big East game to get us a cash!!
