Days after being dominated by Creighton on the road, Marquette welcomed No. 10 Villanova to Fiserv Forum Saturday afternoon, defeating the Wildcats 71-60.
The Golden Eagles thrived off of a very loud home crowd, and despite shooting poorly in the second half, they never allowed Villanova to take the lead. Here is a breakdown of the victory:
Markus Howard had the type of game that the Golden Eagles needed to beat a team like Villanova, scoring 29 points on 7-for-20 shooting from the field. He also added eight rebounds and one assist.
