MARQUETTE PROBABLE LINEUP

  • Matt Heldt (1.9 ppg, 2.4 rpg)
  • Sam Hauser (8.2 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 1.4 apg)
  • Duane Wilson (5.2 ppg, 1.7 rpg, 1.8 apg, 1.1 spg)
  • Andrew Rowsey (10.8 ppg, 1.6 rpg, 2.0 apg)
  • Markus Howard (12.8 ppg, 2.0 rpg, 2.0 apg)

Lineup Note: I have no idea if head coach Steve Wojciechowski is going to stick with the same starting five from the Xavier game. It would seem like the standard issue coaching move to keep rolling with the squad that played so well in a game where MU needed the victory.

ST. JOHN'S PROBABLE LINEUP

  • Kassoum Yakwe (4.1 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 2.1 bpg)
  • Tariq Owens (5.5 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 2.4 bpg)
  • Bashir Ahmed (13.1 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 1.3 apg)
  • Marcus LoVett (17.2 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 3.8 apg, 1.3 spg)
  • Shamorie Ponds (17.2 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 3.1 apg, 2.0 spg)
