Projected seed: 2

Marquette's resume paints the picture of a team that's been battle-tested and come out on top more often than not. They've got signature wins against high-quality opponents, with notable victories over a tough Illinois on the road, a high-ranked Purdue in a narrow contest, and a couple of solid wins against Villanova and Creighton. The loss to Wisconsin shows they can be vulnerable, and the stumbles against unranked teams like Butler serve as a reminder that they're not bulletproof. Still, they show strong offence prowess and a competent defence. Their performance in the upcoming matchups against Connecticut and Xavier will be critical to securing a high seed. Going toe-to-toe with Connecticut will test their mettle, as they're a top team, while a sharp display against Xavier could solidify their standing. The Golden Eagles have demonstrated they're a high-caliber team capable of making noise in the tournament.
