Menominee, MIFebruary 3rd, 2017 – The Marquette Redmen traveled far away from their home turf to take on the Menominee Maroons in Menominee.

They held a four point advantage with only two minutes left in the first quarter, however, they wanted to extend that lead even further. Going into the first intermission, the Marquette Redmen led the Menominee Maroons by nine points.

It was a good start to the  game for the Marquette Redmen, and they continued their excellent play from the first when they extended their lead to six points in the first minute of the second quarter. Ian Ogea was laying down the points for Marquette, and his hot streak caused the Maroons to take an unexpected timeout midway through the quarter. Ian drained his third three pointer of the game with two minutes to go, and that just put Marquette further in front of the Maroons. It was 27-14 late in the first half, however, fouls started to become a problem for Marquette, with multiple players close to being in trouble.
