Women's Basketball Game 11: Marquette (5-5) vs Dartmouth (1-8)

A quick turnaround after a win becomes even quicker as the approaching snow storm forces Marquette to move tonight's game time from 7pm to 4pm.

If you don't want to chance the snow, you can catch the game streamed on GoMarquette.com with Kent Sommerfeld and Kyle Dlabay calling the action.

Luckily for Marquette, Dartmouth's not very good. They opened their season with a win against Bryant, but have dropped their next eight games. Five of those losses have come on the road and this will be the second game that the Big Green play against a Big East opponent. They suffered a 91-64 home loss to Syracuse back on November 29th.

Senior guard Faziah Steen leads Dartmouth in scoring at 12.5 points per game. I don't know if it means anything, but Steen has only played in Dartmouth's eight losses this season. Sophomore forward Abbey Schmidt also averages in double digits at 10.6 ppg, and leads the team in rebounding at 7.9 per game. Starting center Tia Dawson averages more rebounds (7 per game) than she does shots (5 per game).
