Lazar Hayward led MU with 20 points and eight rebounds in only 20 minutes of action. Sophomore Darius Johnson-Odom added 18 while junior Jimmy Butler finished with 13 points, his fourth consecutive double-digit effort.

Marquette shot 50% from the field last night and dished out an impressive 26 assists. Defensively the Warriors remain a work in progress. South Dakota shot 50% from the field for the game, including 8-16 from beyond the arc.
