Analysis
This is a play on the MARQUETTE GOLDEN EAGLES for our CBB Wednesday Supreme Annihilator. Georgia Tech and Marquette square off in the consolation game of the Fort Myers Tipoff as both are coming off close losses to open the tournament. The Golden Eagles fell to 3-2 following a three-point loss against Mississippi St. which is ranked slightly ahead of them (No. 29 vs. No. 26) with their first loss coming against Purdue on the road by five points as an eight-point underdog and has rolled in its three wins are favorites, all by double-digits. This is a big game for Marquette in building a resume that lacks major conference teams on its remaining schedule and even though this is one of the worst ACC teams, it is still an ACC team. The Golden Eagles could be undefeated if they could have closed out the game in those two losses and should not have an issue in doing so here. Georgia Tech is coming off a disappointing 12-20 season last year including a 5-15 record in the ACC and not much returned with its leading scorer coming back with just 7.6 ppg. This is a bad shooting team as the Yellow Jackets are currently No. 344 in the country in effective field goal percentage, as they are hitting just 26.5 percent of their three-pointers and only 41.6 percent of their two-point attempts. Offensive rebounding will be key for Marquette as Georgia Tech is one of the 20 worst defensive rebounding teams in the country and the worst of any major conference team. These are all fair comparisons as they have played a very similar strength of schedule (No. 177 vs. No. 175). 10* (736) Marquette Golden Eagles
