Marquette Shoots Down Ducks 101-92

Antigo, WI, United States /
Marquette Shoots Down Ducks 101-92

Unfazed by a deeper 3-point line, Marquette kept hitting the long bombs in a 101-92 NIT win over Oregon Sunday.  The Golden Eagles will play Penn State in the tournament’s quarterfinal round Tuesday at the Al McGuire Center.  Andrew Rowsey hit six-of-10 3-pointers and led all scorers with 29.  The Eagles hit more than half of their long shots (12-of-23) and 60 percent overall while scoring a season-high 101 points.  They led by 20 at the half, 58-38, and built the lead as big as 27 before foul trouble and a pressing Oregon defense cut the final margin.  Markus Howard scored 18 before fouling out and five Marquette players were in double figures.
