Twenty-one points from Big East Player of the Week Markus Howard led Marquette to a 76-69 win at home against Texas-El Paso Tuesday night. It was the fourth straight win for the Golden Eagles. Marquette was up by seven, 37-30, at the half and built the lead as big as 17 points before the Miners rallied. The visitors got as close as four points, 60-56, with seven minutes to go. Freshman Joey Hauser had 15 points for Marquette in the non-conference game. The Eagles host Wisconsin Saturday at the Fiserv Forum.
