Marquette’s Gardner won’t be suspended

In #25 Marquette’s 63-50 victory over South Florida Monday, Golden Eagles Junior Davante Gardner was ejected from the game after receiving a flagarant-2 foul when his elbow connected with a South Florida player.  Marquette was informed Tuesday that there would be no further discipline for Gardner.

Marquette is out to a 6-1 start in the Big East which has them tied on top of the standings with #6 Syracuse.  If Gardner would have been suspended, he would have missed a big match-up for them.  The Golden Eagles are at #12 Louisville.

Gardner leads the Golden Eagles in rebounds per game (5.5) and is second on the team in points (12.7) and blocks (0.8) per contest.
