FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) Jamil Wilson scored a career-high 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds, and No. 25 Marquette routed tournament host Cal State Fullerton 86-66 on Thursday in the first round of the Wooden Legacy.

Davante Gardner and Jajuan Johnson each had 18 points off the bench for the Golden Eagles, who quickly squashed any hope the Titans had of pulling an upset. Marquette grabbed a double-digit lead just 10 minutes into the game and cruised from there.

The Golden Eagles shot 55.7 percent from the field and outrebounded Cal State Fullerton 40-20. They led by as many as 26, allowing backups to play the majority of the second half.

Michael Williams scored 16 points and Marquis Horne added 13 for Cal State Fullerton.

Marquette will play George Washington in the tournament semifinals Friday. The Titans face Miami in the consolation bracket.
