Marquette beats Colgate in season opener

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jamil Wilson had 15 points, and Davante Gardner added 14 off the bench as Marquette rolled to a 84-63 victory over Colgate in the opening game of the Maui Invitational on Sunday.

Chris Otule added 11 points on 5-of-5 shooting for Marquette in his first game since suffering a season-ending knee injury eight games into last season.

Murphy Burnatowski led Colgate (0-2) with 24 points. Pat Moore added 16.

It was Marquette's season opener after its game against No. 4 Ohio State aboard the USS Yorktown in South Carolina was cancelled Friday night due to condensation on the floor.

The Golden Eagles never trailed against the Raiders. They led 42-31 at halftime and pulled away late, using a 12-4 run starting with 15:04 minutes left to take a 66-46 lead with 10:39 remaining. Colgate got no closer than 15 the rest of the way.
