Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Jake Thomas scored all 18 of his points from beyond the arc to lead the Marquette Golden Eagles to an 81-72 win over the Xavier Musketeers in a Big East Conference matchup at the Bradley Center.

Jamil Wilson and Davante Gardner contributed 16 points each to help Marquette (15-10, 7-5 Big East) collect its third victory in a row. Todd Mayo added 13 points and six assists for the Golden Eagles.

Justin Martin paced the Musketeers (17-8, 7-5) with 20 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the floor. Matt Stainbrook and Myles Davis scored 12 points each, while Semaj Christon tallied 10 points and six assists. Dee Davis handed out a game-high seven assists despite clocking only 22 minutes.
