Marquette beats DePaul 58-48, halts 6-game losing streak
MILWAUKEE (AP) Matt Carlino scored 20 points and Luke Fischer added 17 as Marquette, despite poor shooting, clamped down on DePaul 58-48 in the Big East season finale between two struggling teams on Saturday.
Marquette (12-18, 4-14 Big East) ended a six-game losing streak while sending DePaul (12-19, 6-12) to its seventh-straight loss.
Carlino made all five of Marquette's 3-pointers, finishing 5 of 14 from long range while the rest of the Golden Eagles launched eight more 3-point attempts.
DePaul came in averaging nearly eight 3-pointers a game - hitting 241 for a single-season record - but were just 3 of 6 from deep against Marquette. Jamee Crockett led the Blue Demons with 14 points and Myke Henry 12.
