NCAA Basketball: Butler at Marquette Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Sam and Patrick get together for the first time in a new era for The Anonymous Eagle Podcast and discuss Marquette’s first-place-claiming win over Butler.

We praise Theo John and Jamal Cain for heroic efforts against the Bulldogs, who we decide are a certified good matchup for Marquette. Then we shift gears to Providence and the mega trap game Saturday. Can Marquette stop Nate Watson this time around? We also banter about general college basketball and debate the age-old question: Is the Big Ten any good?

UPDATE [1:30pm Central]: At some point in the show, Sam idly wondered about how often teams with good offenses but struggling defense or vice versa make deep runs in the NCAA tournament. Ben Snider has now answered that question, which you can find right here.
