Washington played very well down the stretch winning the Pac 10 conference tournament and winning 7 straight games. The Huskies have shot the ball very well and will provide a difficult match up for Marquette. The location greatly favors the Huskies as they remain on the west coast for their opening round game. It will be very difficult for Marquette to adjust to the Huskies style of basketball after competing against the Big East style clubs. Marquette struggled on the defensive end allowing 53.6% shooting to Georgetown and 54% to Villanova in their last two games. The Huskies are playing their best basketball of the season and will control tempo in this game to get the cover.
Bet Washington Huskies +2 points
