    Marquette 88, Lewis 40

    MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Freshman Dominic James scored 22 points to lead Marquette to an 88-40 victory over NCAA Division II opponent Lewis Wednesday night.

    Steve Novak added 14 points and Jerel McNeal and Joe Chapman 11 apiece to help the Golden Eagles (10-3) win their fourth straight game. James, who hit three 3-pointers, tied the career high in scoring he set Nov. 30 against Nebraska.

    It was Marquette's final nonconference tuneup before making its Big East debut next Tuesday night against No. 2 Connecticut in Milwaukee.

    Stephan Bolt had 9 points and John Loeffelholz 8 to lead Lewis (7-4).

    The Golden Eagles led 33-19 at halftime.

    A 21-2 second-half scoring run that included a pair of 3-pointers by James put Marquette up 56-22 and ended any hopes the Flyers had of mounting a comeback.

    Marquette wasted little time establishing its dominance.

    After Bolt tied the game 2-2, the Golden Eagles went on a 15-0 scoring run to go ahead for good in the contest. Three-pointers by Novak, Joe Chapman and Dan Fitzgerald highlighted the spurt. The Flyers missed 11 shots during the run.
