The Marquette Golden Eagles beat the Creighton Bluejays 106-104 and as you might expect from such a high-scoring game, there were more than a few players that stood out from the crowd.

Markus Howard (Marquette)

It's hard to come up with a better game this season than what Markus Howard did against Creighton. The Marquette guard scored 53 points (that's not a typo) while hitting 10-of-14 from 3-point land.
