MARQUETTE PROBABLE LINEUP

  • Luke Fischer
  • Sam Hauser
  • Jajuan Johnson
  • Andrew Rowsey
  • Markus Howard

Marquette Lineup Note: That is a 100% guess on the starting five. Head coach Steve Wojciechowski changed up his already changed up lineup for Senior Day on Saturday, and that's the five guys listed above. It's completely possible that Johnson and Fischer go back to the bench in exchange for Duane Wilson and Matt Heldt.

SETON HALL PROBABLE LINEUP

  • Angel Delgado
  • Michael Nzei
  • Desi Rodriguez
  • Khadeen Carrington
  • Madison Jones

Seton Hall Injury Note: Ismael Sanogo did not play in SHU's regular season finale after only playing 15 combined minutes in the previous two games. He has an ankle injury, and on Monday, head coach Kevin Willard said "it's not looking good" in regards to Sanogo playing in this game. With that said, Sanogo did practice on Tuesday and will be a game time decision. Sanogo averaged 31.5 minutes in the two games against Marquette this season (although one did go to overtime), and he averaged 6.5 points and 9.5 rebounds in those two contests.
