Shandon Boone topped Marquette scorers with 18 points; teammate Ben Seabacher added 12 points.

Marquette moves to 10-2 with the triumph. The Explorers play again in the tourney at 6:30 p.m. Monday against Columbia.

"They will be really good," Medford said of Columbia. "They have two 6-foot-6 kids who can shoot the basketball and are a well-coached team. We will have to play really well defensively and carry the boards. If we do those things we will have a chance."
