Marquette trips Creighton

Print Article

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Andrew Rowsey helped Marquette end its three-decade run at the Bradley Center with a lights-out performance from the 3-point line.

The Golden Eagles have the ability to come back from any deficit because of how well they shoot from the perimeter.

Rowsey scored 26 points and hit three deep 3s in the final 3:21, highlighting a second-half shooting surge that helped Marquette beat Creighton 85-81 on Saturday.

Marquette (18-12, 9-9 Big East) swept both games this year with Creighton. This time, a team that shoots 41 percent from 3-point range on the year overcame a 14-point deficit with 16:35 to go with another remarkable display from the arc.

Rowsey, a senior playing his last home game, led the way after launching his 3s from well beyond the arc. He was so far out on the first of his three late 3s that two defenders had retreated.

"When you're just out there playing, you don't realize where you're at," Rowsey recounted.
