Maymon scores 7 points in Marquette's exhibition opener


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Former Madison Memorial standout and current Marquette freshman Jeronne Maymon scored 7 points in the Golden Eagles 106-47 exhibition win over the Milwaukee School of Engineering Saturday afternoon. Lazar Hayward led the way with 24.

Marquette is beginning its first season without star guards Wes Matthews, Dominic James and Jerel McNeal, all lost to graduation.

Hayward scored 18 points in the second half. He's the only returning starter from last year's 25-10 team that finished fifth in the Big East.

MSOE is a Division III team. It scored the first basket on a broken play, and Marquette followed with 23 straight points to take a 23-2 lead on Chris Otule's rebound basket with 13:40 left in the first half.

Rob Linzmeier scored 11 points to lead the Raiders.

Marquette plays its first regular-season game Friday against Centenary.
