Wideman scores 23, Butler sweeps Marquette 92-72 in Big East

MILWAUKEE (AP) Tyler Wideman scored a career-high 23 points with nine rebounds, Kalan Martin scored 16 points, Kamar Baldwin 15 and Butler rode some hot shooting to a 92-72 defeat of Marquette Wednesday night and push its win streak to three games.

Butler (16-7, 6-4 Big East) shot 60 percent from the floor (33 of 55), 57 percent from behind the 3-point arc (8 of 14) and had five players reach double-figure scoring. Sean McDermott added 13 points and Aaron Thompson 11. The Bulldogs have swept Marquette in Big East play this season, and have won four of five games since the Jan. 12 home win against Marquette.

Markus Howard scored 26 points to lead Marquette (13-9, 4-9) with Sacar Anim adding 15 points, Greg Elliott and Sam Hauser 10 each. The Golden Eagles were 24 of 52 from the floor, making nine fewer field goals than Butler, and were out-rebounded 32-22.

Top scorer Andrew Rowsey was scoreless at 0-for-6.

Butler broke the game open with a 10-0 run for a 28-18 lead with eight minutes left in the first half. An 8-2 burst early in the second half pushed the lead to 56-35.
