No. 16 Marquette defeated in-state rival No. 9 Wisconsin 61-54 on Saturday to remain perfect.
Darius Johnson-Odom (above) scored 17 points and Todd Mayo, the younger brother of NBA player O.J. Mayo, added 14. The Golden Eagles (7-0) snapped the Badgers’ 23-game home winning streak.
Marquette played without starting point guard Junior Cadougan, who was suspended for violating team rules. He started the first six games and is averaging 7.7 points and 6.3 assists.
Cadougan is expected to return Tuesday when Marquette plays Washington (4-2) in the Jimmy V Classic at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
Solomon Hill may not be as talented as departed star Derrick Williams, but the junior forward is emerging as Arizona’s leader. He’s been sensational recently and once again led the Wildcats (6-2) to a victory. Arizona knocked off Northern Arizona 53-39. Solomon had a game-high 15 points and seven rebounds.
— Oregon had its four-game winning streak snapped and didn’t put up much of a fight in the second half in a 79-65 defeat at BYU. Garrett Sim finished with 16 points and seven assists, Tony Woods had 13 points and six rebounds and E.J. Singler had 11 points and seven rebounds for the Ducks (4-2).
— UCLA coach Ben Howland benched Reeves Nelson in the second half and Joshua Smith played just four minutes after halftime in the Bruins’ 69-59 loss to Texas. UCLA fell to 2-5.
— Former walk-on Charlie Enquist tallied his first double double to lead Washington State to a 75-49 win over Eastern Washington. He scored 20 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. Reggie Moore and Brock Motum scored 15 points. They also had nine and six turnovers respectively. The Cougars (4-4) were without Faisal Aden (concussion), Mike Ladd (thumb) and Abe Lodwick (foot).
— Good win for Arizona State, which traveled to Tulsa for its first true road game of the season and came away with a gritty 67-64 victory. Perhaps most significant is the Sun Devils came out on top when its best player Trent Lockett had just nine points. Keala King scored a game-high 18 points, Kyle Cain had 11 and Carrick Felix 10. After a 1-3 start, ASU (3-4) has won 2 of the past three games.
Dewayne Dedmon (foot) returned sooner than expected, but USC’s 7-foot center didn’t play much of a role in a 55-40 loss at Minnesota. Dedmon had two points and four rebounds in 26 minutes. Maurice Jones led USC (4-5) with 14 points.
— Utah lost 82-52 at Fresno State to fall to 1-6, which is the worst start in the history of the program. Not sure if first-year coach Larry Krystkowiak will get a second year. The Utes are historically bad. They’re arguable the worst team in the nation and it’s very likely they won’t win another game. Not sure any coach can survive a 1-29 season.
