NEWSLETTER College Basketball Prediction From Robert Ferringo
Take Iowa (-2) over Marquette (7:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 19)
The Hawkeyes have a strange makeup of their team: they have four senior starters and then the rest of the roster is freshmen. But they do have the four seniors to lean on, and their experience will pay off on the road here. Steve Wojciechowski’s Marquette club is a big effort team. They are going to play hard, but they aren’t very good. At all. They could be 0-2 right now, barely beating IUPUI in overtime at home. This team is very young and very raw and they will struggle to make any postseason tournament. Iowa has the size to match Marquette on the inside and the Hawkeyes have more perimeter scoring options. Iowa has its own flaws. But they are the better team right now and will prove it with an easy win.November 19, 2015 at 10:07 am #15310
