MILWAUKEE — Marquette’s postseason hopes were teetering as the new year arrived.

The Golden Eagles had lost four straight games and dropped their first three Big East matchups.

The skid culminated with a crushing, double-overtime home loss to Creighton on New Year's Day in which they allowed a buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the first extra session.

But the 22nd-ranked Golden Eagles haven’t lost since.

Marquette (14-6, 6-3 Big East) has won six straight entering Wednesday night’s game at Seton Hall (12-6, 3-5).

That winning streak includes four victories over teams that were ranked in the Top 25 at the time.
