MARQUETTE HAS PLAYED IN FRONT OF A NATIONAL AUDIENCE THREE TIMES THIS SEASON

The first two times, things, uh, didn't go so well. The last time Marquette played Villanova, Nova's starting backcourt went off for about 75 points against Derrick Wilson, Jake Thomas, and Todd Mayo. As Phil Seymour Hoffman once said to Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski: "This is our concern, Dude."
