Winnable game for us, but Marquette should be favored by as 6-8 points.

This is exactly right but I fear SJU is catching them in a bad spot.  I think Marquette aftr a slow start and some close losses is now poised to rebound with that win over Providence.   I think like most of the top 7 teams in the conference (the 4 bottom teams being Butler, DePaul, G-town and SJU) they feel they cannot under any circumstance lose to any of the bottom 4 especially at home which means they will be extra focused.

Small correction this is a SJU home game so I would expect a closer line, maybe 3-4 points.  Thought the game was in Milwaukee.

Those 2 alone could cause us fits down low. Carton has been playing well and they can score from outside. We will need to bring our A+ game to beat them IMO. We'll also need a huge game from Champ. How we played yesterday definitely won't cut it. 


How does Theo John still have eligibility? Feels like he’s been around for a decade

He went as John Theo the first four years.

There are some players who it feels like we've had to play against for unreasonably long periods of time.  I'd swear that Archediacono was at Nova for 7 or 8 years.  Kamar Baldwin had to be at least 6 years at Butler.  Delgado was at Seton Hall for at least a decade.  Alpha Diallo spent at least 8 years at Providence, I'd swear.

I know what you mean about Theo John but for whatever reason it doesn't feel like that to me with him.

Eli Cain & Phil Booth were most recents that felt like eternity to me,,, and Jermaine Samuels is the current one that made me shake head at start of season..

Will Moore be playing ? With Marquette having John and Garcia we are going to need both Moore and Robert's on the court and being productive.

I agree.  They can be sloppy with the ball and will have defensive lapses.  But, if we don't bring it on D then they will light up the scoreboard.

Ken Pom has SJU losing by three (78-75).  Ken also has SJU losing out, including a loss at DePaul.
