Marquette had to do many things right to earn a piece of the Big East Conference regular season title and a No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament.
One thing coach Buzz Williams said his team didn't do was play a complete game, which the Golden Eagles will likely need to beat surging Davidson in Thursday's second-round East Regional game.
Fourteenth-seeded Davidson (26-7) has won 17 games in a row, a streak powered by a potent offense, especially from 3-point range.
The Golden Eagles (23-8), who have won four of five, believe having had to fight for a share of the Big East crown with Louisville and Georgetown has them prepared to play against a variety of styles. They'll get a chance to prove it against the tough, disciplined Wildcats.
