MU hosts Northern State University in exhibition play

On Sunday the Marquette Golden Eagles will sort of kick off the 2007-2008 campaign with an exhibition game against Northern State University. Tip-off will be at 6pm CST at the Bradley Center.

After analyzing Sunday night's matchup, I'm confident that Marquette will win, even without Trevor Mbakwe. Why? This is a classic trap game for Northern State. NSU played at Iowa on Saturday night then squeezes in the Marquette tilt on Sunday - - just days before their big battle with Black Hills State.

Smart scheduling by MU.

FYI, Northern State University is located in Aberdeen, SD, and has an enrollment of 2,200. Wolves' basketball has been around 106 years, and they currently play in D2's Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.

Here is the GoMarquette release on the game.
