Marquette 100 Milwaukee-Wisconsin 80

An historic night played out at the Bradley Center floor Saturday night. The Marquette University Golden Eagles took on the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panthers. The Golden Eagles battled the Panthers through the first half, until the Golden Eagles took over with a lead during the second half with a 10-0 run. Marquette came into tonight’s game with a 35-0 all-time series lead with Milwaukee. Dominic James became the fourth player in Marquette history to record over 500 career assists with a season high eight assists versus Milwaukee. Junior forward Lazar Hayward recorded his seventh career double-double, and second this season with 25 points and 10 rebounds, while starting guard Jerel McNeal had a season high five steals. MU had at least four players score in double figures, led by senior guard Wesley Matthews, who scored 25 points. Marquette continued to add to the record breaking evening by adding to the second-longest active win streak by an NCAA Division I team with a 100-80 win over Milwaukee. The historic night continued for the Golden Eagles as tonight’s victory marked win number 1,400 for Marquette. MU became just the 50th men’s basketball program in NCAA history to reach the 1,400-win milestone.
