Seniors Colin Kenney and Joe Andershock helped Marquette squash a four-game skid Friday evening in a 75-53 win over visiting Hammond Clark at the Scholl Center.
Kenney (24) and Andershock (23) combined for 47 of the team’s 75 points as the Blazers raced out to an early cushion and never looked back. Kenney, Andershock, and Dayn Staab each scored seven points in the first quarter as Marquette commandeered a 26-9 lead after eight minutes.
Andershock found the bottom of the net on a pair of three-point attempts in the second quarter to give Marquette a 38-22 edge heading into the intermission.
It was Kenney’s turn to knock down two threes in the next quarter while Andershock went to work inside the arc. Andershock led Marquette with 21 points after three periods.
In surpassing his teammate, Kenney put the contest on ice for the Blazers thanks to nine fourth-quarter points. The Furman commit finished with a game-high 24 points thanks in large part to five three-pointers. Staab joined him and Andershock in double figures with 13.
