The Week in Review ...
Men?s Basketball (16-6, 4-5 C-USA)
? Joe Chapman had a perfect first half, scoring 19 points on five- for-five shooting from the 3-point line, but his first half heroics were not enough to propel Marquette past UAB as the Golden Eagles suffered a 86-63 loss at the Bradley Center on Wednesday. Marquette kept the game close in the first half, shooting 60.9 percent from the field in the first half. Senior point guard Travis Diener returned to Marquette's line up and helped Marquette top Southern Miss, 81-72 Saturday at the Bradley Center. Diener, who missed the last two games because of a stress fracture in his left foot, led Marquette in scoring with 17 points after playing only 11 minutes and getting only four points in the first half.
Women?s Basketball (14-7, 5-3 C-USA)
? Marquette?s second-half comeback effort fell short on Saturday as Cincinnati defeated the Golden Eagles, 79-69. Marquette was down by as many as 14 points in the first half and rallied to tie the scored at 40 with 15:20 to play, but Cincinnati closed the game strong to pick up its second-straight conference win. Marquette was led by Lesley Juedes, who scored 19 points ? 16 coming in the second half ? as she helped the Golden Eagles on their comeback run. Juedes hit two of her five three pointers in that four minute, 20 second span to begin the second half to help Marquette draw even. A three-pointer by Christina Quaye, who finished with 16 points, also contributed to the run.
Men?s Tennis (3-2)
? The Marquette men?s tennis team swept Eastern Illinois 7-0 Friday. Marquette started out the night hot in doubles action taking all three games to start singles play 1-0. In singles action, Marquette won all six matches in straight sets. In its second match in two days, the Marquette men?s tennis team was able to post a 6-1 win over Southern Illinois. For the second straight match, the Golden Eagles swept the doubles point and carried the winning momentum into singles action.
