In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Buffalo at Marquette.
Buffalo is currently unbeaten with 11 wins on its resume and it is coming off a very reputable win over Syracuse, 71-59. CJ Massinburg led the Bulls with 25 points on 8 of 16 shooting with 4 threes. Massinburg leads Buffalo in scoring with 18 points per game while Perkins is a frontcourt monster with 8.5 rebounds per game and a great defensive game. As a team, Buffalo is averaging 83.9 points per game on 46.3% shooting.
The Marquette Golden Eagles did not start the season very well but they are currently on a 6-game winning streak. The Golden Eagles are coming off a 92-66 win over North Dakota where Markus Howard finished with 26 points on 9 of 13 shooting with 4 threes. Howard is the leading scorer with 23.2 points per game and he also adds 4.5 assists per game.
Marquette is a very solid team, especially at home where the Golden Eagles are outscoring every opponent by 18 points. I expect another great offensive performance from them and I also believe that Buffalo will be able to keep up with their pace for the most part. I expect this to be a very entertaining and high-scoring game.
