Why Seton Hall can cover

Seton Hall has the size to affect Marquette’s shooting. The Pirates start Ike Obiagu, a 7-foot-2 center from Nigeria, and bring two 6-foot-10 bigs off the bench — Tyrese Samuel and Tray Jackson — to play big minutes. Led by Obiagu, Seton Hall averages 5.6 blocks per game, which ranks 16th in the country.

In addition, the Pirates are one of the best free throw shooting teams in the nation. They make 76.7 percent of their free throws, which ranks second in the Big East and 26th in Div. I. That bodes well against a Marquette team that commits fouls at a high rate (17.4 per game, 234th in the country.)

Why Marquette can cover

Marquette has picked up its efforts on both ends of the court during the team’s winning streak. In the last six outings, the Golden Eagles are averaging 78.7 points per game while shooting a red-hot 50.0 percent from the floor as a team and 42.7 percent from behind the 3-point line. Marquette is also holding opponents well below their season averages, thanks in large part to just 37.5 percent shooting from the floor.

In addition, the Golden Eagles are one of the best teams in the country at sharing the ball. Marquette averages 17.7 assists per game, which ranks second in the Big East and 10th in the nation. Tyler Kolek, a transfer from George Mason, leads the conference and ranks eighth in the nation in assists per game (6.5).
