LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) A lopsided loss to Wichita State in the Maui Invitational semifinals hurt Marquette. The Golden Eagles thought they could be competitive with one of the nation's top teams and didn't measure up.
The key was to regroup, find a way to win the third-place game and go home with two wins instead of one. A big second half allowed them to do that.
Andrew Rowsey scored 24 of his 30 points in the second half and Marquette pulled away for a 94-84 victory over LSU for third in the Maui Invitational on Wednesday.
