Marquette Wins on National Marquette Day



   MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Darius Johnson-Odom and Jae Crowder scored 23 points each, helping No. 18 Marquette beat Cincinnati 95-78 on Saturday.

   Jamil Wilson added 15 points for the Golden Eagles (21-5, 10-3 Big East), who have won nine of their last 10 games.

   JaQuon Parker and Dion Dixon scored 15 points each for the Bearcats (17-8, 7-5), who had won two straight coming into Saturday's game.

   Sean Kilpatrick, Cincinnati's leading scorer, was held to a season-low seven points and spent the late stages of the game on the bench.

   It was the most points the defense-minded Bearcats have given up all season. Cincinnati allowed 78 points in a win over Villanova on Jan. 14.

   Marquette forced Cincinnati into 14 turnovers.
