Marquette, MI  January 8th, 2018: The Marquette Redmen are finally back in action tonight against the Gladstone Braves, a game in which saw the Redmen win 79-66. This is Marquette’s first basketball game in 17 days, going back to December 22nd when they beat Negaunee on the road. This is also the Redmens first home game of the 2017/18 basketball season after bad weather canceled two of their games this past week. The game stream can be found on foxsportsmarquette.com.

 

Tonight’s first half saw both Marquette and Gladstone unable to create any sort of separation from one another. The Redmen saw themselves down by 5 points after the first quarter in what looked liked was due to their long break. The Redmen were sloppy on offense early in the game throwing away a few careless turnovers. Gladstone appeared to be heading into halftime with a 3-point lead after hitting a jumper with 5 seconds remaining but Bryce Brazeau buried his own 3-point bucket to beat the buzzer and finishing the game with 5 points.
