Player Grades: Marquette at Green Bay

Marquette recorded one of its worst losses in recent memory Wednesday night, losing on the road to a 3-7 Green Bay squad with only eight active players, 49-47. Here are the player grades:

Junior Cadougan (8 pts, 6 asts, 5 to) Blew an easy lay-up early on but did hit a nice jumper off the dribble. He did add six assists in the first half alone, thanks to Jamil’s hot shooting. However, his ball handling was simply too lax with a few head scratching turnovers, and he failed to record an assist in the second half. His clutch free throw shooting has still yet to be found, missing the front end of a one-and-one down the stretch. Marquette needed more from its senior leader. D-

Vander Blue (6 pts, 4 reb, 2 stl, 20% shooting) Couldn’t get his shot to fall in the first half and had a bad turnover at half court early on. Saw some pine for long stretches of the second half, and was generally ineffective. His defense did make up a bit for it, but this was a game where Vander’s improved shooting would have been particularly helpful. He struggled from the line, missing the front end of a one-and-one with less than a minute left and down one. D

Juan Anderson (0 pts, 3 reb, 2 blk)  His confidence on the offensive end has been regressing. He did have another nice block in the game and was aggressive under the boards, but it was tough to see him on the floor against that zone. D

Chris Otule (2 pts, 2 reb, 16min) Lost the tip for the first time this season and had to play a bit far from the basket against Brown, limiting his effectiveness and his minutes. C

Trent Lockett (5 pts, 7 reb, 3 to) Took a great charge to open the game and was active under the glass, but his jumper is still suspect. He led the team in rebounds but is still a liability on offense. D

Jamil Wilson (16 pts, 4 reb, 4-5 3pt) His first three was a bit lucky, hitting the edge of the rim before bouncing in off the glass, but after a little skirmish over a loose ball, Wilson locked it down hitting three more threes, single handedly turning the tide in the first half for Marquette with 14 points. He did cool off in the second half though, missing badly on two jumpers before finally slamming home a lefty putback. He was the best player on the team by far, but still hasn’t gotten it done down the stretch. B

Davante Gardner (7 pts, 2 reb 1 blk) Davante scored on his first touch, but saw very few touches after that with Green Bay playing zone. He also had a few needless turnovers in the second half, holding onto the ball way too long. He needs to be able to pass out of a double team much better than that. The And-1 near the end of the game was as clutch a basket as he has hit in his career, but it was for naught. C –

Derrick Wilson (0 pts, 1 ast, 1 stl) Played tight defense during Marquette’s 15-2 run to turn the game around,  and was constantly subbed in on defensive possessions, but didn’t attack the basket enough to break the zone and stay on the floor on offense. C-

Jake Thomas (3 pts, 1-4 3pt) Jake has yet to find his shot and his time is dwindling with Mayo’s potential return bound to cut his playing time. He did make one in the second half but followed that with a bad brick off the side of the glass. He had a great look with three seconds left to win it for Marquette, but his shot was a tad strong and rimmed out. D
