Limited Encounters With Zags In Series History
The Golden Eagles have faced Gonzaga on just two occasions, with each team claiming a victory.

The first meeting between the two schools came in 1984-85, when Gonzaga visited Wisconsin and defeated MU 60-54 in the championship game of the Milwaukee Classic.
Cadougan Collects Career-Best In Assists
In 22 minutes off the bench against Duke Monday night, sophomore guard Junior Cadougan was able to dish out a career-best seven assists while turning the ball over just once.
Cadougan’s seven helpers surpassed the combined total (6) of the rest of the other seven players to see action for Marquette. He also scored a personal-best five points in the setback to the Blue Devils. His previous game high came against Prairie View A&M in the season opener, when he collected five assists.
The Toronto, Ontario, native played in just 12 games in 2009-10 after suffering an achilles injury during preseason workouts. He had just four assists all of last season.
