Hi I'm Bryan Webber welcome to hoops hysteria I'm pleased to be joined by college basketball analyst John Crist could get you ready for the big east parity. Over the years we've seen great individual performances in this tournament from. Chris Mullin Jerry Mac and there was a Walter Berry referenced when he gave one -- -- -- to stand out this year in the Big Apple. Has it been that long that we can't talk about Kemba Walker. I'm old I'm mad Kemba Walker last year just did his thing. This year I think -- would watch Marquette Marquette buzz saw tight team get up and down the floor they're not afraid to shoot. Also being. Pressure you on defense and it starts with you guys Jae Crowder. And and Darius Johnson Odom I -- you guys have put up about eighteen point two games of 36 points combined. From these two players and two guys in the top five in scoring the big east. On one team. And to my surprise to me and we haven't really followed Marquette as much. -- number two team in the big east and it's something they've had a slip through the cracks all this talk about Syracuse in the slightest bit and Connecticut. Marquette played very good basketball -- because of these two guys. Late hit on Syracuse. They've had the best regular season we've ever seen the big east year by the notion and all the -- day I'm should get some of the starters. Limited minutes resting up for the targeted because they've already locked up the number once I think you tell your players if you will -- admit. To go out Dominic. And you get the rest of the guys in the game. These young kids are they're still kids they don't play till late in the week they got two days off. In terms of a body the tournament starts on Tuesday -- play till Thursday so I think you get you guys into the game you have to keep your rhythm there's a reason why they're playing as well as they are. And you have to stay on top of that and the one lost they had Notre Dame went out fab Melo I think that hurt but in many ways it didn't really matter I think how you need to hit. Stay on the gas you need to be hit on all cylinders and get going into this tournament because it's a team. That would this zone it can get a little finicky and I think they may struggle a little. Little bit the big east tournament because. There'll -- schemes that seemed zone they know how to play it so I I think. You need to work on some other things you need me struggle a little bit this big east tournament I think it's gonna be good for Syracuse don't just pack it in. Okay let's wrap it up when your prediction of who you picking to win at New York City well when -- go with Marquette all. Yes Marquette -- as I know you thank you very -- -- this is senior driven team with Crowder and Johnson Odom and senior driven team these two guys have a chance. To finish their careers of Marquette with the championship. I think we have all the confidence now being second ranked team in the conference and it's a very good conference they'll. -- -- gonna take seventeen to the NCAA tournament so look for these two seniors to lead the way I look for them to have a big tournament. I look forward to it to lead all the way to a championship. Bowl pick and as we alluded to a loss would necessarily -- your kids and they're gonna be on the top like I don't salute selection Sunday -- logic. That's gonna do for this vision of hoops hysteria don't forget foxwoods dot com as you covered Troy college basketball needs for John I'm Brian we'll see next up.
