Marquette's 20/10 Vision Sign Of Success
Saturday's victory over Rutgers was Marquette's 20th of the year overall and 10th in BIG EAST Conference action.
Through games of Feb. 23, Marquette and Georgetown are the only two programs in the league to claim at least 20 overall decisions and 10 conference victories since the 2005-06 campaign. MU's 30 BIG EAST wins during that time are surpassed by only Georgetown's 35.
Marquette has now claimed 20-or-more victories in a season on five occasions under ninth-year head coach Tom Crean.

The program's 10th league win of the campaign was a 30-point decision over Rutgers Saturday afternoon at the Bradley Center.
The Golden Eagles now own four BIG EAST Conference victories this season of 25-or-more points, the most of any team in the league. MU opened the conference portion of its schedule with a 96-67 win (29 points) over Providence and followed that up three games later with a 92-66 decision (26 points) against Notre Dame.
The Golden Eagles downed Seton Hall 89-64 (25 points) on the road on Feb. 25 and pulled away for the 30-point victory over the Scarlet Knights.
Through games of Feb. 23, Marquette is the only league team with more than one 25-point victory in conference action this season.
