Marquette rode the hot hand of senior guard Matt Carlino and beat Georgia Tech 72-70 in the opening round of bracket play at the Orlando Classic. Carlino scored 38 points and made 8 of his 14 3-point attempts. He also calmly sank 14 of his 16 free throws attempts and grabbed a team-high (tied) 6 rebounds.

After the game, Carlino and Coach Wojciechowski met with the media. A video of their post-games comments is included below.

Next up for Marquette is Michigan State who cruised past Rider earlier this evening in a 77-45 lopsided affair. The Spartans are ranked #20 in the AP and #19 in the Coaches Poll. Game time is approximately 9 p.m. ET.

Miscellaneous Notes from Tonight’s Game:

  • Georgia Tech’s offensive rebounding percentage was 46%. With a distinct size disadvantage this wasn’t unexpected and was actually an improvement from the NJIT game (47%).
  • Effective field goal percentage is the most important of a basketball game’s four factors and the MU held an edge, 52.1% to 50.0%.
  • Carlino’s 38 points set an Orlando Classic record.
  • Georgia Tech freshman guard Tadric Jackson, ranked #90 in the 2014 RSCI, played 17 minutes and scored 17 points off the bench on 56.7% eFG shooting. His contributions were especially important because team leader Marcus Georges-Hunt only played 23 minutes after getting into early foul trouble.
  • Juan Anderson was the only other MU player to score in double figures. He had 12 points to go along with 6 rebounds and was very vocal on the court.
  • Deonte Burton was credited with 5 steals in just 16 minutes of play. His 5.2 steal percentage as a freshman was one of the best in the nation for players who played at least 30% of their respective team’s minutes.
  • Points in the paint: Georgia Tech 26, Marquette 20
  • Points off turnovers: Tied, 18
  • 2nd chance points: Georgia Tech 12, Marquette 11
  • Bench points: Georgia Tech 35, Marquette 7
