Double-double against Bulldogs Cain had 14 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists and two steals across 34 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 73-57 victory over Butler.
Impact Cain had started each of the previous 21 games for Marquette this season, but it's unclear if him coming off the bench was a strategic move, or to feign some kind of punishment. In any case, the senior ended up logging more minutes than any Marquette starter outside of D.J. Carton en route to his second double-double of the season. Given that this was Cain's best performance of Big East play, it wouldn't be shocking to see this alignment continue when the Golden Eagles face UConn in a road matchup Saturday.
