Marquette's final game of the regular season is also the final home game for the regular season this year. The Golden Eagles face the Cincinnati Bearcats tonight at 7pm at the Al McGuire Center. If you can't make it down, you can catch the game on Time Warner Sports 32, where Steve "The Homer" True and Kareeda Chones-Aguam calling the action.
If you're going to the game, get there early. Starting at 6:45, Marquette will honor the lone senior on the team, Sarina Simmons. Simmons surpassed the 1,000 point plateau earlier this season and has the fourth most blocks in program history with 152.
Marquette and Cincinnati have hooked up once already this season. The Bearcats came away with the victory in Cincinnati on a last second layup by Tiffany Turner. That one was UC's first Big East win of the season, and they've gone 3-1 since then.
Marquette picked up a win in their last contest, defeating Georgetown 51-48. The Hoyas cut MU's lead down to just 1 twice in the last 5 minutes, including on a layup from Sugar Rodgers with just 30 seconds left. Arlesia Morse buried two free throws after GU fouled to try to extend the game. The Hoyas did get two looks from Jasmine Jackson at a three pointer in the last 10 seconds of the game, but both tries missed, and Marquette evened their season record back up at .500.
