WISCONSIN SPORTS ROUNDUP: Marquette beats Providence, faces St. John's tomorrow
With two freshmen in the starting lineup, the Marquette men's basketball team beat Providence last night, 61-to-50 in Milwaukee. Coach Buzz Williams started Deonte Burton and JaJuan Johnson and used an 11-man rotation to keep a faster-and-fresher team on the floor. It worked, as the Golden Eagles scored 26 points off fast breaks. Marquette forced 11 turnovers in the first half, and went up by 17 at the intermission.
