 Quick thoughts on the Big East quarter final match up between Marquette and Villanova . . .

Villanova goes as Scottie Reynolds goes

GUARDS, GUARDS & YOU GUESSED IT . . . GUARDS:   When the biggest impact guy in Marquette’s lineup is Lazar Hayward at 6-6,  and the engine that fuels Villanova’s high flying offense is 6-2 Scottie Reynolds, its going to come down to which team’s guard play wins out.  Duh . . .

Villanova swept the season series this year by a total of 4 points and they come into their third meeting of the year going in opposite directions.  Marquette has won 10 of 12 against Big East opponents and the Wildcats have lost four of their last six going 4-5 after starting 9-0 in the Big East.

The x-factor is going to be depth.  Marquette only has 8 guys that play double digit minutes while Jay Wright has an 11 player rotation for Villanova.  Will the Wildcats outlast those pesky Golden Eagles?  I think so.

Villanova wins 76-72
