Duane Wilson racks up points as MU takes 3rd at Orlando Classic

Duane Wilson's 30 point performance helped push the Marquette Golden Eagles past Tennessee 67-59 in the third place game at the Orlando Classic Sunday.

Marquette used a 14-4 run in the first half to establish a lead, then got hot again midway into the second half once Tennessee had pulled within one point. Duane Wilson was a big part of both runs, finishing 9-of-17 from the floor and hitting five three pointers.

Derrick Wilson added 11 for the Golden Eagles, who cap off an impressive tournament with a 2-1 record. MU started the Orlando Classic with a 72-70 win over Georgia Tech before dropping a decision to Michigan State Friday.
