Marquette Claimed Lone Meeting With Vermont

The Golden Eagles and Catamounts have met on the court on just one occasion previously, with Marquette posting an 89-58 victory at home on Dec. 22, 1995 in the MECCA Arena.

Guard Aaron Hutchins led the way with 22 points and forward Chris Crawford chipped in 21 points and 10 rebounds for a double-double. MU forced 27 Vermont turnovers and that matchup also came right before a game at rival Wisconsin. The 1995-96 team finished 23-8 overall and played in the NCAA tournament.

Home Sweet Home For Marquette In December

Marquette began the first of two extended homestands on Nov. 27 and as a result is playing 8-of-9 contests at the BMO Harris Bradley Center through the end of December.

The Golden Eagles won't leave the state from Nov. 23 until Jan. 3, at Providence, and the only road game prior to that is Dec. 9 down I-94 at Wisconsin.

The team's second four-game homestand in 2017-18 begins Dec. 18 when the Golden Eagles host Northern Illinois.

News & Notes: Offensive Accomplishments Continue for MU

  • Markus Howard, who is a perfect 20-of-20 from the free throw line in 2017-18, has made 29-straight charity tosses dating back to last season's home finale against Creighton on March 4.
  • Sam Hauser is still in search of his first career double-double, but it's just a matter of time before he gets it. He has now grabbed nine rebounds on six occasions dating back to last year, including twice already this season.
  • Marquette features the league's top two scorers through games of Dec. 3. Senior Andrew Rowsey tops the league with 22.6 points per game (14th in nation) and Howard is second at 21.0 points per contest (t37th in nation).
  • Howard was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll on Dec. 4 for his efforts in a trio of games last week, but his last two performances have been particularly impressive. Against Chicago State and Georgia he contributed 31.0 points per game while shooting 57.9 percent (22-of-38) from the floor overall and 15-of-27 (55.6 percent) from long distance.
