Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Davante Gardner scored 19 points and made five steals in just 21 minutes off the bench as the Marquette Golden Eagles slipped by the LSU Tigers, 84-80, in non-conference play at the Bradley Center.

The Tigers (7-2) were paced by Andre Stringer who tallied a game-high 20 points, converting 6-of-10 shots behind the three-point line, as the team lost for the second time in the last three contests.
