MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) Tyrese Martin tossed in a career-high 25 points, R.J. Cole scored 20 and Connecticut turned back Marquette 78-70 in Big East Conference play on Tuesday night.
Martin sank 9 of 16 shots from the floor and added six rebounds for the Huskies (10-3, 1-1). Cole hit 7 of 12 shots and handed out seven assists. Andre Jackson pitched in with 10 points and seven boards. Adama Sanogo - the Huskies' second-leading scorer and third-best rebounder - returned to action after missing four games with an abdominal strain. He scored six points and grabbed two rebounds off the bench.
UConn led 43-37 at halftime and pushed the lead to double digits - 58-47 - on Cole's three-point play with 13:10 left to play. The Golden Eagles (8-5, 0-2) pulled within 66-65 on a layup by Justin Lewis with 4:15 remaining, but Martin scored six straight points and Cole's jumper capped an 8-0 run to wrap up the win.
Lewis, a freshman, paced Marquette with 20 points and seven rebounds. Olivier-Maxence Prosper had 13 points and five boards.
Marquette was forced to play without second-leading scorer Darryl Morsell due to COVID-19 health and safety concerns.
