Golden Eagles Won't Relinquish Lead

By David Scott - January 10, 2007

STORRS, Conn. - It’s become a nip and tuck affair but Marquette re-asserted itself in the 8:00 area, highlighted by a breakaway dunk by Dominic James off the Huskies’ 20th turnover of the game. At the under-8:00 media timeout, the Golden Eagles lead 54-48 with 7:28 left in the game.

. . . Marquette’s Ousmane Barro has been huge at both ends of the floor with 14 points and nine rebounds on 6 of 9 from the field. Barro has also more than held his own on the defensive end, often times against the bigger, broader Hasheem Thabeet, who has a tendency to disappear - as freshman are wont to do.

Jeff Adrien leads all scorers with 15 points.

. . . Marquette continues to do its work in the lane, outscoring the bigger, deeper UConn squad, 34-18 in the paint.

. . . Marquette has switched to a two-three zone on defense. UConn has begun a token full court press to disrupt the offense of Marquette.
