Audrey Faber added 21, while Sydney Lamberty chipped in 10 points and 12 assists. CU shot 51.6 percent (32-62) from the field and finished 8-for-21 from long distance.

Marquette trailed Creighton, 45-36, at halftime. King poured in 10 first-half points to lead all MU scorers, but the team shot just 39.5 percent (15-38) from the field, including 1-for-9 from downtown. Creighton was led by Audrey Faber’s 16 points as the Bluejays shot 48.5 percent (16-33), including 5-10 from downtown.
