MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Eighth-ranked Marquette aims for a 15th win in 16 games when it concludes regular-season play against Conference USA rival Cincinnati at the Bradley Center on Saturday.

The Golden Eagles (22-4, 13-2 C-USA American), who have won four straight games, already have clinched the division title and a share of the conference championship. They can secure the outright conference title with a victory or a loss by National Division champ Memphis at UAB on Saturday.

Last Saturday, Marquette defeated UAB here, 98-87. Dwyane Wade collected 26 points, seven assists, a career-best four blocks and four steals, Robert Jackson added 22 points and 10 rebounds and Travis Diener 14 and 10 assists.

Cincinnati (17-9, 9-6 American) has won three of four, including an 87-80 triumph over UAB on Wednesday.

Leonard Stokes paced the Bearcats with 23 points and 12 rebounds.

Marquette defeated Cincinnati at the Shoemaker Center on February 1, 82-76. Jackson had 21 points and Wade 16 for the Golden Eagles, who trail the all-time series, 21-14.
