Marquette cruises past DePaul 80-69


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Lazar Hayward had 19 points and 14 rebounds and Marquette avenged an earlier loss to DePaul with a 80-69 victory over the Blue Demons on Wednesday night to extend its winning streak to three.

Darius Johnson-Odom added 21 points and Jimmy Butler 18 for the Golden Eagles (14-8, 5-5 Big East), who didn't trail Jan. 20 until Mike Stovall's jumper with seven-tenths of a second to play snapped DePaul's 24-game conference losing streak.

In the rematch, Marquette never trailed, building a double-digit first-half lead and using a 12-0 run early in the second half to open a big advantage.

DePaul (8-14, 1-9) is still searching for its second win under interim coach Tracy Webster, who fell to 1-7 since replacing Jerry Wainwright.

Mac Koshwal led DePaul with 18 points, but the Blue Demons shot 38 percent from the field.
