Aneesah Morrow’s streak of 23 straight double-doubles came to an end during DePaul’s 105-85 loss to Marquette in the Big East quarterfinals on Saturday.
The star freshman finished with a game-high 29 points on 10-for-20 shooting, but came up short of the double-double with six rebounds to go along with five steals.

Marquette outshot DePaul 65.7 percent to 47.4 percent and dominated on the boards 49-17. All five Golden Eagles starters finished the game in double figures, led by Liza Karlen’s 26 points and 14 rebounds.
“I would just say Marquette’s determination to get me off the boards was one of the biggest things,” Morrow said after the game.
Morrow’s double-double streak was the sixth-longest in a Division I women’s basketball season.
South Carolina’s Aliyah Boston now holds the longest active double-double streak, clinching her 23rd straight to match Morrow’s record in the team’s win over Ole Miss on Saturday.
