Their 95 points on 71 possessions resulted in a 133.0 adjusted offensive efficiency—Marquette’s highest mark against a non-Depaul opponent this season. That clinic-like precision resulted in some Cintas Center history.

In his third season on the job, Wojciechowski has employed his collection of knockdown long-range shooters to perfection, leading to a major advantage in production from beyond the arc. Marquette has connected on a remarkable 44.5 percent of their threes in league play. The Big East’s next best conference-only three-point offense is Creighton, all the way down at 37.9 percent. As a whole, the league hits 35.7 percent of their triples. That’s just one reason as to why Marquette isn’t merely trending toward the right side of the bubble at this point—they also are growing into a team that nobody is going to want to face in the postseason.
