WATCH: Marquette's Howard scores 52 points vs. Providence

  Marquette guard Markus Howard scored 52 points in the Golden Eagles' win over Providence.

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.

A taste of what Howard was doing all night:

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.
