A late push wasn't enough to overcome a slow start by Marquette on Tuesday at Fiserv Forum as the Golden Eagles fell in a ranked showdown with Creighton, 73-65.
Markus Howard was limited to just 13 points. Sacar Anim led Marquette with 18, while Theo Jon scored 12 points and Koby McEwen had 10.
Creighton sweeps the season series from Marquette, having also won in January.
The loss snaps a four-game winning streak for the Golden Eagles.
Marquette heads out on the road to play Providence this Saturday. Only five Big East regular-season games remain.
