Senior guards Natisha Hiedeman and Allazia Blockton led the top-seeded Marquette women’s basketball team to a 75-52 victory over the fourth-seeded Georgetown Hoyas in the BIG EAST semifinals Monday afternoon.
Monday’s win advances Marquette to the BIG EAST championship game for the third straight year.
“We’re super excited,” Hiedeman said. “We’ve been working for this for the whole season.”
The Golden Eagles now have 26 wins on the season, which ties a program record previously set in 2006-’07.
“We continue to grow every day,” Hiedeman said. “We’re mature, we know who the hot hand (on the team) is, and we try to get them the ball.
