Jae Crowder scored 27 points and Darius Johnson-Odom added 21 to lead No. 10 Marquette to an 82-65 victory over Rutgers on Wednesday night.

The win was the fourth straight and 11th in 12 game for the Golden Eagles (23-5, 12-3) and it kept them tied for second place in the Big East with No. 20 Notre Dame, which beat West Virginia 71-44 on Wednesday. The top four teams earn a double-bye for the conference tournament.

Jerome Seagears had 14 points and Gilvydas Biruta added 12 for Rutgers (12-16, 4-11), which lost for the sixth straight time, including three in a row to ranked teams. The Scarlet Knights were routed by Notre Dame on Feb. 15, but held its own against No. 2 Syracuse before losing 74-64 on Sunday.
