Even though they played two NCAA tourney games last year, there’s no picture of their mascot. So here’s an actual Chesapeake Bay retriever playing in some snow.

MARQUETTE PROBABLE STARTERS

These are 2017-18 stats, unless noted

  • Markus Howard (20.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists)
  • Brendan Bailey (21 year old freshman)
  • Sacar Anim (7.6 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists)
  • Sam Hauser (14.1 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists)
  • Ed Morrow (9.4 points, 7.5 rebounds, 0.3 assists, 1.1 blocks in 2015-17 for Nebraska)

UMBC PROBABLE STARTERS

  • Shoot, man, I dunno. UMBC didn’t play an exhibition game that they publicized anywhere, so I don’t have anything to go on here. Joe Sherburne, Arkel Lamar, and Daniel Akin all started in their NCAA tournament loss against Kansas State, but past that? You got me.
