ROSEMONT, Ill., Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Darius Johnson-Odom led a parade of five Golden Eagles scoring in double figures Monday, netting 23 points in No. 19 Marquette's 89-76 win over DePaul.

Jamil Wilson and Jae Crowder combined for 32 points and 20 rebounds for Marquette (20-5, 9-3 Big East), which bounced back from a 17-point Saturday loss at Notre Dame.

The Golden Eagles started slowly but overcame a 12-point deficit thanks in part to 16 points from Vander Blue and 10 more from Junior Cadougan.

DePaul (11-12, 2-9) was led by Cleveland Melvin with 22 points.
