Michigan Basketball hits the road for a neutral site game against Marquette in its first big test of the season at Madison Square Garden.
The Wolverines have roared out to a 2-0 start to the year, but face a tough task tonight in the Golden Eagles, who have also won both of their games and boast one of the best offensive attacks in college basketball.
One thing for sure: No matter which way this thing goes, we are going to know way more about this team after the clock hits zero than we could have learned last weekend.
Michigan has yet to really light up the scoreboard yet this season, so them getting it going from outside is going to be a big key in this game, as well as keeping Marquette out of the paint.
It should be an exciting game with the winner whoever walks out of Pittsburgh vs. SMU with a victory.
Prediction: Michigan 81, Marquette 77
