Marquette off to inconsistent start

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Picked in the preseason coaches' poll to win the revamped Big East, Marquette heads into its conference home opener searching for consistency following a one-sided loss to Creighton.

The Golden Eagles (8-6, 0-1) face DePaul (8-6, 0-1) on Saturday. The Blue Demons lost 61-54 at Georgetown on Tuesday.

Marquette reached the regional finals of the NCAA tournament last season, but has struggled offensively following the graduation of point guard Junior Cadougan, who directed 75 victories over the last three seasons, and Vander Blue, who declared early for the NBA draft.

Marquette has victories against Southern University, Grambling State, New Hampshire, Cal State-Fullerton, George Washington, IUPUI, Ball State and Samford, while losing to No. 3 Ohio State, Arizona State, No. 21 San Diego State, No. 4 Wisconsin, New Mexico and Creighton.
