No. 18 Marquette vs. Butler: Live stream info, game preview, picks and predictions & more

Marquette needs to roll to keep their Top 25 ranking.

The 18th-ranked Marquette Golden Eagles will travel for a conference matchup against the Butler Bulldogs on Saturday afternoon.

Marquette (16-8, 8-5 Big East) is coming off three-straight matchups against top-25 opponents. The Golden Eagles came away with just one victory in that stretch, but have a pretty solid chance to bounce back with three days of rest ahead of their upcoming contest. Freshman forward Justin Lewis is averaging 16.6 points and 8.0 rebounds.

Butler (11-13, 4-9 Big East) is 2-7 in its last nine games. Their 11-13 record doesn’t necessarily do them justice for how close they play every one of their opponents. A weekend game back on their home floor could be just what they need, following three consecutive losses by three points or fewer.

Butler moves as slow as any team in America, and Marquette struggles to shoot on the road. This is just two trends coming together.
