DJO was dominant on offense and Vander Blue on defense, but the story today was that someone forgot to tell Marquette’s three freshman that when you visit a top 10 opponent, you have less than a 7 percent chance of winning. The odds get a lot worse when your starting point guard can’t play, and even worse when you can't go for steals after being whistled for four fouls in the first five minutes against the team that is the WORST team in the country at drawing fouls.In the past decade, Marquette was just above the national average – going 1-11 when facing a Top 10 team on the road (based on www.kenpom) until upsetting UConn last year. Now Marquette has done it twice in a row – and the freshman were a big part of it. vs. Top 10 on roadRnkDaySeasonResultMUOppWisconsin3Sat Dec 32012W6154Connecticut10Thu Feb 242011W7467Pittsburgh4Sat Jan 82011L8189Syracuse4Sat Jan 232010L7176West Virginia8Tue Dec 292010L6263Wisconsin9Sat Dec 122010L6372Pittsburgh5Wed Mar 42009L7590Louisville4Sun Mar 1...
