MILWAUKEE (AP) Marquette head coach Steve Wojciechowski didn't like the first half. He felt much better about the second.
Sam Hauser scored 25 points, Markus Howard added 24 points and a career-high nine rebounds and No. 15 Marquette rallied past Providence 79-68 on Sunday.
"We were very fortunate to be down only eight points at halftime," Wojciechowski said, adding that he didn't do a good enough job preparing the team.
