5 key performers in Marquette's win over the Creighton Bluejays

Marquette pulled off an overtime win in Omaha on Wednesday night 106-104.


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.


Ty-Shon Alexander (Creighton)

Because Howard scored 53, it's hard to be impressed by Alexander's 23 points and five rebounds. He still had himself a heck of a game.


Davion Mintz (Creighton)

There might not have been a bigger surprise performance than Mintz's 21 points. He came into the game averaging less than nine points per contest.


Sam Hauser (Marquette)

Hauser had 13 points and 10 rebounds. That would be fine on most nights. On Wednesday, Hauser got his 13th point on a 3-point shot with under a second to go in the game. That shot sent the game into overtime. Marquette eventually won.


Martin Krampelj (Creighton)

The Bluejays' center has had a solid season but he stood out on Wednesday. He had 19 points and eight rebounds. Most of those points came from the free-throw line as he hit 13-of-14 from the line. He came into the night hitting less than 50 percent from the line.
