-North Dakota leads the turnover battle 7 to 8.

-Steve Taylor leads the way for the Golden Eagles with 7 points, while Matt Carlino has failed to score

-Right from the moment Luke Fischer entered the game, two North Dakota defenders were glued to him. North Dakota has moved Marquette outside the paint, forcing the Golden Eagles to beat them with the jumper.

-Marquette had three points in the first seven and a half minutes, going over five minutes without a basket, 7-3.

-Luke Fischer came into game shooting 89 percent from the field, missing just three shots in his first 19 attempts.  Tonight he missed his first three shots.  He did not make a basket until 14 minutes into the game. He goes into the half with just 2 points, his fewest this season.

-Steve Taylor has been very active, getting to the line at will. Unfortunately for him, he has not converted from the stripe, hitting just one of his first six attempts.  He goes into the half 4 of 10 shooting from the line.

-A North Dakota three pointer with 6:35 gave them an eight-point lead, their largest lead of the game, 20-12.  But defense led to offense for Marquette after blocks by Fischer and Anderson led to layups on the other end, and helped the Golden Eagles go on an 11-1 run, 23-21.

-North Dakota finished the last three minutes on a 8-1 run behind two three pointers, reclaiming the lead 29-24.
