The Marquette women's basketball moved to 4-0 on the season after defeating the Western Michigan Broncos 89-58 Sunday afternoon.

The Golden Eagles raced out to a 15-0 lead and were never truly tested in a game where Marquette shot 52.2 percent from the field, while holding the Broncos to 30.5%.

Sophomore forward Paige Fiedorowicz, started in her first game of the season, and led Marquette with 14 points and six rebounds in 20 minutes of action.

The reliable backcourt of guards Krystal Ellis and Angel Robinson combined for 23 points and 10 assists to contribute to the team's fast-paced offense.

Marquette, which played in its second consecutive road game, showed no signs of weakness or fatigue.

The Golden Eagles drained 19 of their 32 field goal attempts in the first half, including seven 3-pointers.

Their stifling defense was put on display once again, holding the Broncos to only six first half field goals.

As was the case in the first three games, the Golden Eagles dominated the boards, out-rebounding the Broncos 45-29.

This is the first time since the 2004-'05 season that the Golden Eagles have began its season at 4-0.
