MU exhibits new talent, wins by 30

Marquette took to the Bradley Center for the first game of 2010, an exhibition versus St. Johns, a D3 team out of Minnesota.

Some bullet points:

  • Starters: Fulce, Butler, Otule, DJO, Buycks.
  • Buycks started as PG .. Junior Cadougan was riding pine until the last few minutes of the first half.

  • Jae Crowder was the first man off the bench, followed by Vander Blue.
  • Crowder had a double double, 15 and 10.
  • Crowder and Otule combined for 27 points. When was the last time MU's interior guys combined for 27? And 19 rebounds? (Maybe the last time we played a D3 team, yeah. Let me be excited for a few more minutes, ok?)

  • Sign me up for the Jae Crowder fan club.

  • The team shot poorly, in general. Jimmy Butler, 2-7, Buycks, 2-10, Vander 1-5. Jimmy went 5-10 from the charity stripe. (!!!)
  • Reggie Smith .. 6th man of the game. He was in the game about 5 possessions and had 6 points, ended with 8. He lead the team with 7 assists and zero turnovers in his 14 minutes. Mind you, that was against St. John's, and not the Big East St. John's.
  • Jamail Jones 8 points, 2 boards in 7 minutes. There's a lot to like in those numbers.
  • When Frozena was in the game, we outscored St. John's 10-2. He's a difference maker, baby.

  • Junior Cadougan? 11 minutes, 5 points, 1 assist. Really.
  • Erik Williams? 8 minutes, 0 points, 1 rebound. Really.
