Instant Analysis

What a draw for Vermont on the offensive side of the ball.

The Catamounts rely on running a half-court set with isolation as the plan of attack. When the isolation doesn’t result in a high-percentage shot, Vermont has pivoted to a high number of catch-and-shoot 3-pointers. All of these offensive sets are issues for Marquette, which ranks 321st in half-court defensive efficiency and 309th against isolation.
