Marquette takes 5th place in Maui

The Marquette Golden Eagles wrapped up their trip to Maui with a 72-64 win over USC.  The game gave Marquette 5th place for the invite as the finish the week with a 2-1 record.

Jamil Wilson led the way with 19-points off the bench.  He was one of four Golden Eagles in double-figures.  Davante Gardner had 12-points also off the bench.  In their 3-tournament games, 107 of their 232 points came from their reserves (46.1%).

Illinois knocked off Butler 78-61 in the Championship game.

Marquette is now 4-1 on the season.  They are back on the floor Monday at the BMO Harris Bradley center as UMBC visits Milwaukee.  A week from today (Nov. 29th), the Golden Eagles head to Gainesville to lock up with the Florida Gators in the Big East/SEC Challenge.
