Matthews has 24 points; Marquette's 16-3 run gives it lift past Seton Hall
MILWAUKEE -- After growing impatient with his team's defense, first-year Marquette coach Buzz Williams recently remarked that he would prefer to see them play like a bunch of guys who eat hamburgers instead of filet mignon.Apparently, it took the Golden Eagles a half to work up an appetite on Tuesday night -- something they won't get away with again anytime soon, as their schedule takes a brutal turn.
• Marquette earned its 17th straight home victory by outscoring Seton Hall 45-30 in the second half.
• Four players scored in double figures for Marquette, including Wesley Matthews (game-high 24). At least three players have scored in double figures for the Golden Eagles in 25 of their 26 games this season.
• Marquette is 2-2 in its last four games after a 12-game win streak.
