It's a question that's almost always asked of a college coach before a game against a team the school doesn't usually play.
Who does your opponent most compare to?
When Marquette head coach Buzz Williams was asked the question Tuesday, he took a few seconds to think. Stumped, he had to compare Miami to two schools the Golden Eagles have lost to this season.
Williams sees the Hurricanes as a combination of Florida and Louisville. That means Marquette is in for quite the challenge when it faces Miami at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.
"If you believe it, Miami sets more ball screens than Florida," Williams said. "That's hard to do."
"I think it's incredible what they've accomplished in the time that they've been there. I think Coach Larranaga has given credit to Frank Haith for the players that were there when he took the job, but I think how he's managed and coached (has been great)."
