MILWAUKEE -
A capacity crowd was once again on hand for Marquette Madness Friday night at the Al McGuire Center, as MU fans were introduced to the 2014-15 men's and women's basketball teams.

The night's festivities included the debut of each squad's intro video, team scrimmages, dunk contest, and a dance presentation by the women's squad.

The men's scrimmage featured a twist with players switching teams at halftime and it was junior transfer Wally Ellenson who led all scorers with eight points.

Senior co-captain Juan Anderson was impressive on both ends of the floor, notching seven points to go along with three steals. The dunk contest was won by sophomore Deonte Burton, who posted four perfect scores, including two in the final round, to defeat Ellenson.

Prior to their scrimmage, the women's basketball team performed a dance routine with assistance from surprise guest, President Michael R. Lovell.

The women's scrimmage resulted in a 31-31 tie. Cristina Bigica, Hannah Grim and Lauren Tibbs led all scorers with eight points apiece.
