No. 11 Marquette Cruise over Northern Colorado



MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Freshman Todd Mayo replaced suspended star Darius Johnson-Odom in the starting lineup and scored 22 points to lead No. 11 Marquette to a 93-72 victory over Northern Colorado on Saturday.

   Jae Crowder added 19 points and 11 rebounds for Marquette (10-0), which moved to 10-0 for the first time in a decade and seventh time in school history. Vander Blue had 18 points

   Tate Unruh had a career-high 25 points for Northern Colorado (3-7), the defending Big Sky Conference regular-season and tournament champions. Unruh made five 3-pointers.

   Johnson-Odom, who is averaging 18.8 points, 3.3 assists and 3.2 points per game, was suspended for an unspecified violation of team rules. The school announced the penalty before the game and said the senior guard is expected to return Monday at LSU.
