CHICAGO – Anna Martin scored 20 points and Sam Quigley added 15 to help No. 10 DePaul to a 64-56 win over No. 21 Marquette on Saturday night.
Trailing by three at the half, DePaul (23-3, 10-1 Big East) scored the first 13 points of the second half to take command of the game.
Quigley hit five 3-pointers to the delight of the sellout crowd of 3,958 at McGrath Arena. Felicia Chester added 11 points.
Jasmine Collins scored 15 points for the Golden Eagles (19-5, 7-4) while Tatiyiana McMorris and Angel Robinson each had 11.
Marquette led 29-26 after an intense, fast-paced opening half that saw four ties and 10 lead changes.
DePaul then took over. Chester started the run with a three-point play and Quigley hit two 3-pointers. Martin then added a layup and Chester a hook shot that made it 39-29.
Robinson finally halted the spurt with a 3-pointer, but that didn't slow down the Blue Demons.
They extended their lead to 19 with 7:51 left on Martin's 3-pointer. The advantage didn't dip to single digits until the final 25 seconds.
The win ended Marquette's four-game winning streak. DePaul hosts Rutgers on Tuesday while Marquette visits Seton Hall on Wednesday.
