Player Grades: Marquette vs. Georgetown

Junior Cadougan (2pts, 6 asts, 3 stls) Junior bricked a few shots at the rim and failed to get a score in the first half, shooting 0-6 in the process. He never really got comfortable scoring wise, but he did do a decent job of distributing, racking up six assists. His most important contribution came on the defensive end though, poking the ball away on an inbounds with less than a minute left, preventing an easy bucket and preserving Marquette’s lead. C

Vander Blue (12 pts, 1 ast, 1 reb, 2 to) He was Marquette’s entire offense for the first 17 minutes of the first half then kind of fell off the map. His contribution can’t be overlooked though, as he kept Marquette in the game early on. He didn’t rebound as much as he usually does, but he gets a pass for tying for the team lead with 12 points. B

Chris Otule (2 pts, 1 reb, 14 min) Did very well to challenge shots down low in the first half and had a few terrific seals that allowed easy drives to the basket by his teammates. Chris hit his only shot he took and generally played his role to perfection. A-

Trent Lockett
(9 pts, 10 reb, 2 blk) Lockett had one of if not  the best games of his MU career, finishing one point short of a double double. His dunk at the start of the second half was reminiscent of some highlight reel stuffs from his ASU days and he was a menace on defense, particularly on the glass. However, his foul on a Wittington three at the end of the game was about as dumb as it gets. Luckily, Wittington missed the third free throw and Lockett was able to grab the board. Had it not been for that foul, this would have been an A performance. B

Jamil Wilson (8 pts, 6 reb, 1 blk) Jamil got the surprise start but was a complete non-factor in the first half before turning it on in the second. With his turnaround jumper falling, he gave Marquette another scoring threat and freed some space for Gardner. His rebounding continues to become more aggressive, something Marquette desperately needs. B

Davante Gardner (12 pts, 7 reb, 8-10 FT) What is there to say about Gardner that hasn’t been said. He only took three shots yet managed to tie for the team lead with 12 points. I would venture a guess that he’s the best free-throw shooting big man in the country, and one of the best overall in the Big East. A-

Juan Anderson (1 pt, 4 reb, 3 fls) His hustle play during the first half was something Buzz will play on a loop at practice. Coming off the bench, Anderson provided his patented defense and hustle. B

Derrick Wilson (0 pts, 2 ast, 9 min) Derrick played his patented defense and didn’t commit a single turnover on offense. He missed both his shots though, including a last minute 3. B-  

Steve Taylor (2 min, 1 ast) Barely got any run in a game where points were at a premium. NA

Todd Mayo (3 pts, 2 ast, 12 min) Mayo’s lone bucket was a much needed three in the second half and was the last made field goal for the Golden Eagles in the game. He did struggle to create any offense though, shooting just 1-5 for the game. C-

Jake Thomas (2 min, 0 pts) Jake missed the only shot he took in the game in the first half, failing to see the court after that. NA

    Why is Ferguson and Taylor not getting any time? Is it because they’re freshmen? From what I see, Mayo, Thomas, and Lockett aren’t showing any consistency. Buzz needs to play his freshmen, NOW!!
