The Steve Wojciechowski Era is off to a nice start as the Golden Eagles hold a eight point lead at the half.

  • The scoring leader for the Golden Eagles is, unsurprisingly, Deonte Burton, with 10 points. Burton's been alright from the field (2-4), but is thriving from the free throw line, knocking down all four of his attempts. JaJuan Johnson has nine points.
  • Transfer Matt Carlino is doing a good job distributing the ball, he leads the team with four assists. Carlino also has four points, but they have come on five shots.
  • On the UT-Martin side, Twymond Howard leads the charge with eight points. Marquette is also being out-rebounded by a margin of 21-15. This is due largely to UT-Martin's Myles Taylor who pulled down seven first half boards.
  • If they hold on in the second half, the Golden Eagles will improve to 83-15 all time in season opening games.
