Dec 19, 2009 - 9:24 PM MILWAUKEE(AP) -- Jimmy Butler scored 21 points and Joseph Fulce had a collegiate-high 13 points and 10 rebounds as Marquette rolled to a 78-51 victory over North Florida on Saturday.

Marquette (8-3) used a 16-2 run early in the second half to pull away, holding the Ospreys (1-7) scoreless for 5:02. Butler scored 10 points during the spurt.

Lazar Hayward added 13 points and seven rebounds for Marquette, which rebounded from a 72-63 loss to Wisconsin a week ago.
