Marquette halts skid with 92-79 win at DePaul

ROSEMONT, Illinois - Marquette halted its two-game losing skid with a 92-79 victory over DePaul on Saturday afternoon at Allstate Arena.

The Golden Eagles (15-8, 6-5 BIG EAST) hit a season-best 14 3-pointers in the victory and were led by reshirt junior guard Andrew Rowsey, who notched a game-high 22 points on just eight shots from the floor. It is Rowsey's seventh 20-point performance on the year and the third time this season that he has hit at least five triples.

Senior center Luke Fischer held down Marquette's backline with a near triple-double of 13 points, eight rebounds and seven blocks.

Tre'Darius McCallum led DePaul (8-15, 1-9 BIG EAST) with 21 points, while Billy Garrett Jr. had 17 points and five assists for the Blue Demons.

Marquette returns to Milwaukee to host Butler on Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 8 p.m. Central time.
