The Week in Review ...
Men?s Basketball (14-4, 2-3 C-USA)
? Despite 24 points from sophomore Dameon Mason, Marquette couldn?t overcome double-digit turnovers and 21 DePaul offensive rebounds, falling 85-72 to Blue Demons on Thursday night at Allstate Arena. Senior Travis Diener was the only other Marquette player in double figures with 15 points and nine assists. Diener also had three steals in the game, giving him 151 for his career and passing Dwyane Wade for ninth all-time in school history.
It was his first collegiate start, yet Ousmane Barro?s collegiate-high nine points was not enough to propel no. 25 Marquette over Charlotte in a 76-67 loss Saturday afternoon at the Bradley Center. Diener led the Golden Eagles in scoring with 15, Mason had 15 and Ryan Amoroso added 13.
Women?s Basketball (12-6, 3-2 C-USA)

Four starters topped double figures with Kamm adding 16. Kieger added 11 and Juedes tossed in 10. Kieger also had seven assists and seven steals.
A barrage of three pointers and a hot start by Tulane were too much for Marquette to overcome as the Golden Eagles lost to the Green Wave, 74-54. Danielle Kamm scored seven in the second half to finish with a team-high 12 points. Christina Quaye finished with 11 points and Efuleko Osagie scored seven off then bench for Marquette.
