Marquette added two more goals in the second half by Chris Lee in the 57th minute and Eric Marshall with nine minutes left to play in the match.
With the loss, the Blue Demons fall to 0-2 overall and 0-1 in Conference USA play. The home opener for DePaul will be next Sunday when they host Detroit at noon. The DePaul women's team will follow with a match against UW-Green Bay.
