MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Marquette leading scorer Darius Johnson-Odom is among four Golden Eagles players disciplined for the game at West Virginia for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

Marquette spokesman Scott Kuykendall says starters Johnson-Odom, Junior Cadougan and Vander Blue were benched for the first half Friday night. Todd Mayo was ordered to sit out the second half due to a similar violation.

Jamail Jones was given his first start of the season, while Derrick Wilson and Mayo each got their second start.

Johnson-Odom leads the 10th-ranked Golden Eagles with 18.7 points per game.

Marquette entered with wins in four straight games and 11 of 12 overall.
