Marquette men’s basketball beat Rutgers 82-65 Wendesday night at the Bradley Center.

Marquette head coach Buzz Williams

Fast Starts:
“You know we haven’t really been that good when we get out on a fast start, but I think our first five minutes were really good.”

On Jae Crowder:
“Of all the players we have coached here, his efficiency numbers are staggering, better than any player that has played here.”

Friday’s game:
“We will manage tomorrow like any other day after a game…we aren’t trying to outsmart anyone; we want to win THIS game.”

DJO:
“I think he is in a really good rhythm. It’s fun to watch seniors at the end of their career. When DJ first got here he would get to a 2 o’clock practice at 1:59, but now he is having a manager pick him up at 12:30.”

Marquette Forward Jae Crowder
On Big East record:
“We know that if we win one more game, we can set a little history this year.”

Double bye:
“Last year we were on the other end of that and winning games straight; that’s pretty tough.”

Slow Starts:
“We didn’t want to come out like we have been in the past at home; sluggish, but I think we responded well to what we wanted to do early.”

On quick turn around:
“Mentally it has to be all locked in because you’re not going to as much stuff physically.”

How far can this team go:
“The sky is the limit. We can do whatever we want to do.”

“Right now we [Rutgers] have boys and Marquette have men.”
