Marquette's victory over #16 Pittsburgh today not only kept them in first place in the Big East, it also extended their home winning streak to 23 straight wins.  The win by Buzz Williams' club ties the 4th longest home winning streak for men's basketball at Marquette with the teams from 1958 to 1960 under Eddie Hickey.  Marquette has two more home games this year and if they win both will move into the third longest home winning streak in MU history heading into next season.
