2022 Tournament PreviewMarquette is dancing on the strength of five Quad 1 victories, including two against Villanova, despite an early exit from the Big East tournament as the fifth-place team. Now, new head coach Shaka Smart hopes to accomplish something he failed to do in six seasons at Texas -- win a NCAA Tournament game. Marquette has plenty of talent with 6-7 freshman and NBA hopeful Justin Lewis (17.1 ppg 7.9 rpg), former Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year Darryl Morsell (13.5 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 2.5 apg) and freshman guard Kameron Jones (7.5 ppg), each of whom shoots at least 35 percent from three-point range. The Golden Eagles are good -- but not great -- ranking 62nd and 46th in KenPom's offensive and defensive efficiency, respectively. Rebounding is a struggle, as Marquette is outside the top 300 in both offensive and defensive rebounding rates. Marquette can always overwhelm a smaller and less-talented school with its fast pace (28th, per KenPom), but that's not the case in a first-round matchup against North Carolina.
