North Carolina vs Marquette Prediction | March Madness Picks and Bracketology

In terms of a core four or specific core of players, North Carolina has the talent to compete with anyone. However, they have been incredibly inconsistent all season long. They also run a short rotation and a pretty fast pace, which always could lead to fatigue.

Marquette had a strong stretch during this season. However, they strumbled down the stretch, and a big reason is their inability to rebound the ball. They haven’t strung two wins together since January.

While we have seen Shaka Smart have his teams ready to go come March, his first season in Marquette doesn’t feel like it’ll happen. Look for the talent of North Carolina to be enough to win and cover the spread in the first round.
