Recap


Jae Crowder finished with 25 points and seven rebounds, and Jimmy Butler added 19 and eight as Marquette knocked off No. 10 Syracuse 76-70 in Milwaukee on Saturday.

Darius Johnson-Odom chipped in 17 points for the Golden Eagles (14-8, 5-4 Big East), who snapped a three-game losing streak to ranked opponents.

Marquette shot 54 percent in the first half and knocked down 13 of 15 free throws in jumping out to a 42-31 lead at the break. Kris Joseph kept the Orange in it with 13 in the first half, but the Golden Eagles scored the last four points of the period to push the lead to double digits.

Syracuse slowly chipped away in the second half, finally pulling even at 56-56 when Scoop Jardine capped a 10-3 run with a layup at the 8:18 mark. The Orange would tie it twice more but were never able to take the lead, falling behind for good when Butler drained a 3-pointer to put Marquette up 69-66 with 1:53 remaining.

Jardine collected 13 points and 13 assists and Joseph scored 18 for Syracuse (18-4, 5-4 Big East), which has dropped four in a row for the first time since 2006.
