Marquette rebounds against Mississippi State

The Marquette Golden Eagles took their frustrations from Tuesday’s loss in the Maui Invitational to Butler out on Mississippi State on Wednesday, rolling to a 89-62 win over the Bulldogs.

Butler knocked off the Golden Eagles Tuesday with a buzzer beating three-pointer.  Marquette put that loss behind them quickly however.  They jumped out early on an undermanned Mississippi State (1-3) team and were never threatened.

Vander Blue scored 18 points and Devante Gardner added 15 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Golden Eagles (3-1).

Marquette faces USC (3-1) in today’s 5th place game at 4pm Wisconsin time.  The Trojans are led by former Marquette coach Kevin O’Neill.
