Marquette has already climbed out of the Big East's winless basement with their win at Seton Hall earlier this week, and they aim to keep Pittsburgh there when the two squads face off this afternoon at 2pm Central. You can catch live stats here, and the game's available for streaming if you want to drop some cash.

Pitt comes in having lost their last three games, all in Big East play, and none of them were terribly close at the end. Their last game was their worst loss of the season, dropping a 61-32 decision at St. John's. Junior forward Asia Logan and sophomore guard Brianna Kiesel are the only two Panthers to start every game, and unsurprisingly, they're also the only two averaging more than 10 points a game. Logan leads the squad in scoring and rebounding, while Kiesel has the most assists.

A key to victory for MU might be limiting the Panthers' offensive rebounds. On the season, Pitt and their opponents are very similar in the Four Factors, except in offensive rebounding rate, where the Panthers have a decided advantage.
