Redshirt junior forward Lauren Van Kleunen holds onto the ball in Marquette's loss to Mississippi State Nov. 25 at the Al McGuire Center.
Following their second home loss of the season, Marquette women’s basketball bounced back in a 77-63 win out west against Saint Mary’s Friday afternoon.
Saint Mary’s opened the game with an 8-2 run before Marquette’s offense found its rhythm with a 3-pointer from junior guard Selena Lott. First-year guard Jordan King hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to give MU a 25-21 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Lott and redshirt junior forward Lauren Van Kleunen combined for 12 of the team’s 25 first-quarter points.
