After starting Big East play slow last season, the Marquette Golden Eagles jumped all over Providence and rolled to a 96-67 win over the Friars in their league opener last night at the Bradley Center.

Junior guard Dominic James scored a game high 21, leading four Golden Eagles in double figures in the win. 

Marquette (11-1, 1-0) shot 53% from the field and out-rebounded the Friars 37-23.  It's the 7th straight win for the Golden Eagles.
