Marquette takes down Villanova 71-60

After a loss earlier this week to Creighton, Marquette bounced back in a big way with a win on Saturday.

A big first half and 51 combined points from Markus Howard and Koby McEwen led Marquette to the upset of #10 Villanova.

Howard scored 29 to lead the Golden Eagles, while McEwen added 22. Theo John added six points and 10 rebounds for Marquette.

A 46-point first half gave Marquette a 17-point lead going into the locker room, and the Golden Eagles weathered the storm in the second half, taking an 11-point home victory.

Marquette will play Providence at Fiserv Forum on Tuesday night.
