The Marquette women's basketball team returns to the friendly confines of the Al McGuire Center Wednesday to host Georgetown. The 7 p.m. tip-off will air live locally on Time Warner Sports Ch. 32 with Steve the Home True and Kareeda Chones-Aguam calling all of the action courtside.
Wednesday is Racine County Night. All fans from Racine with valid identification receive half-price admission.
The Golden Eagles (11-8, 3-3 BIG EAST) return home after capturing their first BIG EAST road win of the season at USF, 79-66. Junior Krystal Ellis, a BIG EAST Honor Roll selection this week, led all scorers with 30 points. It was her fourth game this season of 30 or more points.
Marquette also had a strong inside presence against the Bulls with junior Kelly Lam giving the Golden eagles 11 points, freshman Paige Fiedorowicz adding 10 points and senior Svetlana Kovalenko and redshirt freshman combining for 19 rebounds.
Georgetown (11-8, 1-5) has struggled in BIG EAST play after earning 10 non-conference wins. Georgetown's lone league win came against Seton Hall, 57-56, on Jan. 22. The Hoyas have yet to win a conference game on their opponents home floor.
Kieraah Marlow is Georgetown's leading scorer and rebounder with 15.2 ppg and 7.0. The Hoyas are currently averaging 63.6 ppg, compared to MU's 69.1 point scoring average.
