MILWAUKEE (AP) - Neither Lazar Hayward nor his coach knew he was having his best game on offense.
Hayward scored a collegiate-high 28 points to lead Marquette to an 86-60 victory over Maryland-Eastern Shore on Tuesday night.
He found out about his accomplishment after the game when he was interviewed on television.
"They told me something about getting my collegiate high," Hayward said. "I didn't even know. I don't pay attention to any of that stuff."
Hayward was 12 of 20 from the floor to go with eight rebounds, two assists and two steals. Jimmy Butler added 13 points and seven rebounds for Marquette (2-0), which never trailed in extending its nonconference home winning streak to 22 games.
"I'm happy for him," Marquette coach Buzz Williams said. "I didn't think he was very good in the first half.
"I didn't know it was a career high until I was doing post-game radio. He was much better in the second half. I'm glad he was able to have that. We don't need him to score like that all the time, but we need him to play like that all the time."
