Muskies Struggle in Milwaukee!! Will Seton Hall Be Any Different??
Xavier(18-9,8-6 in the Big East-fouth place) lost the first four minute war in a rout 19-2 and could never recover-losing their third straight game 83-61 to Marquette(16-10,6-7 Big East-5th) Saturday night at the Bradley Center. MU came out throwing daggers-fueled by a sell-out National Marquette Basketball Day crowd-a full week of preparation following a mid-week scheduling bye and a new look line-up featuring their pint sized guards Markus Howard and Andrew Rowsey. XU was hamstrung again by Trevon Bluiett's unavailability and a short bench.
