For all we know, Marquette may just be playing possum with us and are ready to storm to the top of the Big East.
The Golden Eagles, an old foe of the Wildcats when the Big East was a basketball superpower, have been surprisingly off this season at 9-6 overall and 1-1 in conference.
Sooner or later, a light will go off for Buzz Williams' team, it is just a matter of when it happens.
If Marquette puts a late run together, the March 2 clash at Villanova could end up determining who gets a higher seed at the Big East Tournament, and it will also be a major resume booster for either side.
For the sake of the Wildcats, they will hope that this year continues to be a down one in Wisconsin, but if Marquette gets hot, every single game will matter for the Wildcats during the stretch run, which means they must be focused during every minute of play.
