MU beats DePaul 79-70

On Saturday, as expected, Marquette stayed unbeaten-in-the-Big-East, victorious over a "victory-challenged" DePaul squad. While Marquette won 79-70, the 2nd half was irritating, as DePaul actually outscored MU, 36-31.

Marquette improved to 6-0, DePaul unimproved to 0-7.

McNeal scored 21, Matthews 20, Lazar had a double-double with 17 and 16 (sixteen) rebounds. Even Dwight Burke got into double-digits, with 10 and 7 rebounds. DJ almost had a double-double the hard way, 8 points, 9 assists, 2 turnovers and 3 steals. You take that line any day.

After beating DePaul Saturday, Marquette left for South Bend to play Notre Dame on Monday Night.
