Marquette takes down another sixth-ranked team at Fiserv Forum,

In case anyone who follows college basketball was still skeptical, Marquette provided more hard evidence on Wednesday night at Fiserv Forum.

The Golden Eagles are good.

MU pulled away from Connecticut for an 82-76 victory – the second time this season that the Golden Eagles have picked off the No. 6 team in the country at home after beating Baylor on Nov. 29.

MU (14-4, 6-1 Big East) just re-entered the AP poll this week at No. 25, but the victory over the Huskies (15-3, 4-3) should open some more eyes.

BOX SCORE: Marquette 82, UConn 76

“We proved people wrong last year,” MU center Oso Ighodaro said. “And we returned our core guys and our culture is just continuing to build.

“I feel like we’ve had this belief in ourselves ever since the end of last season.”
