The Wildcats are outscoring opponents by an average of 11.3 points per game during their hot streak. On the opposite side of the court, Markus Howard and his 24.6 points per game will counter Paschall. Meanwhile, the Marquette Golden Eagles, who share the same 19-4 record as Villanova, have averaged 79 points per game thanks to a 39.5 percent shooting percentage from beyond the arc.

Jermaine Samuels #23 of the Villanova Wildcats keeps the ball as Theo John #4 and Cam Marotta #52 of the Marquette Golden Eagles defend during quarterfinals of the Big East Basketball Tournament at Madison Square Garden on March 8, 2018 in New York City.

Villanova answered with 10 consecutive points, pulling within 47-42 on Saddiq Bey's 3-pointer from the right corner. He and junior Sacar Anim accounted for the team's final 26 points, which spanned 16 minutes and 30 seconds of game time. Marquette is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a loss. It looked as if they were well on their way to cruising to a bounceback home win over the top team in the Big East standings.

Marquette: The Golden Eagles play three of their next four on the road, culminating in a rematch at Villanova on February 27. Marquette's advantage offensively should be enough to see the Golden Eagles win by a bucket, so I'll lay the points with Marquette and kick back to watch what should be a fantastic game. Although dominant at home, Marquette is 5-3 on the road.
