Agreed Marquette is better on paper. Two years ago, with the same core of players, Marquette beat DePaul three times. But last year they split their regular-season contests and then DePaul destroyed Marquette by 35 in the conference championship game.Marquette is the better team when they're on IMO. Everything this year has been unpredictable though, so we'll see what happens. Should be a fun game though.
DePaul's system is what one would call high-risk, high-reward. Yesterday was a lot of risk and not much reward.When it goes bad for DePaul, it goes REALLY bad.
