    Marquette wants another strong effort vs. Eastern Illinois

    Marquette didn't seem to miss the school's all-time leading scorer in the opener against Arkansas Pine-Bluff on Wednesday. Markus Howard averaged a nation-best 27.8 points last season, but Marquette (1-0) didn't seem to care that the sharpshooter graduated, jumping to a 50-18 halftime advantage Wednesday and cruising to a 99-57 home victory. Six players scored in double figures, led by 6-foot-11 freshman Dawson Garcia, a McDonald's All-American who finished with 19 points, four rebounds and four assists.

    Reuvers leads No. 7 Wisconsin past Eastern Illinois, 77-67

    Wisconsin big man Nate Reuvers posed all sorts of problems for Eastern Illinois, which had no way to replicate him in practice. Panthers coach Jay Spoonhour doesn't exactly have a roster full of 6-foot-11 players who can score inside and out, rebound and block shots. Reuvers did all three Wednesday night as the seventh-ranked Badgers began their season with a 77-67 victory over Eastern Illinois.
