Junior Katherine Plouffe continues to lead MU in scoring (12.7 ppg) and rebounding (7.6 rpg).
Marquette defeated Georgetown on the road over the weekend in a 51-48 contest as sophomore Arlesia Morse sank two-free throws in the final 10 seconds of play, which sealed the victory. The win put the Golden Eagles back at .500 overall and jumped them ahead of the Hoyas for 10th place in the conference standings.
The Bearcats enter the game with a 4-11 conference record and are coming off of a 56-48 victory over Rutgers on Saturday. UC is currently 13th in the league standings.
