MU claims 20th victory on Saturday

Tom Crean's Golden Eagles moved to 20-4 overall and 7-2 in the Big East with a 69-62 win over the Providence Friars.

Jerel McNeal paced MU with 18 points and 12 boards. Dan Fitzgerald continued his torrid shooting of late, making four three-pointers as he tallied 14 points and five rebounds. Still, the stat that told the story today was rebounding where MU outrebounded the tough Friars 39-26 - a far cry from the battering MU took at the hands of PC last month.

The win marks MU's second consecutive 20-win season, and the fourth in Tom Crean's tenure. Congratulations!
