Markus Howard, you are ridiculous.

The sophomore sharpshooter dropped 52(!) points in Marquette’s overtime win against Providence on Wednesday night. Howard, who shot 55 percent from 3 as a freshman, hit 11 of 19 shots from behind the arc. His full stat line: 52 points, 17-for-29 from the field, 7-for-7 from the free-throw line.

Howard tied MarShon Brooks’ Big East single-game scoring record and broke the conference record for made 3s.

What a shooter. What a scorer. What a player.
