NEW ENGLAND MEN’S ROUNDUP

Roundup: Providence can’t slow Marquette

Vander Blue scored 13 points and played suffocating defense on the Big East’s leading scorer to lead Marquette to an 81-71 victory over Providence Saturday in Milwaukee in a game delayed several times because of a dive-bombing bat.

Junior Cadougan led Marquette (14-4, 5-1) with 15 points, and Trent Lockett and Davante Gardner added 13 each as part of a balanced attack. Bryce Cotton, who came in averaging 21.9 points per game, led Providence (10-10, 2-6) with 19 hard-earned points. He attempted just nine shots and made five.
