No. 10 Marquette beats UW-Milwaukee


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Junior Cadougan tied his career high with 15 points and No. 10 Marquette beat cross-town rival Wisconsin-Milwaukee for the 39th straight time, 64-50 on Thursday night.

Darius Johnson-Odom and Davante Gardner added 12 points each for Marquette (11-1), which was coming off its first loss of the season Monday at LSU. Cadougan also had a career-high seven rebounds.

Ryan Allen led Milwaukee (9-4) with 16 points and a career-high 13 rebounds, and Kaylon Williams had 11 points.

Marquette's 39-game winning streak against Milwaukee is the second-longest involving two Division I teams. Syracuse has beaten Colgate 45 straight times.

The series dates to 1917, and Marquette's 75-72 victory last season was the closest game in series history. This one also had the look of a rivalry, with physical and sometimes sloppy play on both ends. The teams combined for 41 fouls, including three technicals.
