FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) -- Davante Gardner scored 20 points and had nine rebounds to lead No. 25 Marquette to a 76-60 victory over George Washington University on Friday in the semifinals of the Wooden Legacy.
Marquette (5-2) used a 12-2 run early in the first half to build a double-digit lead, and never trailed.
The Colonials (5-1) tried to stage a couple of comebacks in the second half but never got any closer than 12 points in the second half.
George Washington hurt itself by shooting just 35 percent from the floor, and making just 15 of 25 free throws.
Gardner had 14 of his game-high 20 points, when the Golden Eagles built a 21-point halftime lead. Jake Thomas added 13 points for the Marquette.
The Colonials were led by Kethan Savage and Maurice Creek, who scored 15 and 14 points, respectively.
