The 15th ranked Marquette Golden Eagles rallied from 11 points down in the second half to get by Seton Hall 66-59 in Big East action at the Bradley Center.
Jae Crowder scored 20 points and pulled down 12 rebounds and Vander Blue added 16 points for the Golden Eagles (19-4, 8-2 Big East) in the win.
It was the 7th straight victory for the Golden Eagles. Marquette trailed the entire first half and didn’t take the lead until beyond the midway point of the second half. It’s a habit the Golden Eagles are trying to break, but they’re not having much luck.
The Golden Eagles had to play without their big man, 6’8, 290 pound forward Davante Gardner, who sprained his left knee in Saturday’s win over Villanova.
Next up for the Golden Eagles, a road game at Notre Dame on Saturday.
