Marquette star Markus Howard made history during the Golden Eagles' 101-79 thrashing of USC on Friday.

The senior guard scored 51 points on 14-of-24 shooting – including nine triples – to become the first player in Big East history to drop 40-plus points in consecutive games. He's also the fourth player in major conference history to notch 40-plus points in consecutive days, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Howard posted 40 points in Thursday's win over Davidson in the opening round of the Orlando Invitational, bringing his total to a new tournament record of 91, according to Emily Giambalvo of The Washington Post.
