NCAABB: Marquette Golden Eagles vs. Connecticut Huskies

Jae Crowder had 29 points and 12 rebounds to lead No. 12 Marquette to a 79-64 road victory over Connecticut and keep the Golden Eagles in position for a double bye in next month’s Big East tournament. Darius Johnson-Odom added 24 points for Marquette (22-5, 11-3 Big East), which won for the 10th time 11 games. Johnson-Odom and Crowder combined for 29 first-half points as the Golden Eagles ran out to a 43-29 halftime lead. UConn cut that to four points early in the second half, but could not stay with Marquette. Jeremy Lamb had 19 points to lead Connecticut (16-10, 6-8), which fell to 2/3 in the five games coach Jim Calhoun has missed with back problems.
