The Blue Demons will face second-seeded Connecticut in the quarterfinals on Sunday night.
DePaul (21-10) trailed 40-36 early in the second half before going on a 17-4 run to take a 53-44 lead with just over 10 minutes left. Martin, who missed eight games with a deep bone bruise in her left knee, got the run started.
The Golden Eagles (16-15) were only able to get within seven the rest of the way.
Arlesia Morse scored 16 points to lead Marquette.
Unlike the first few games of the day where offense was at a premium, these two teams put points up. DePaul led 35-34 at the end of an entertaining first half. Martin had 13 points.

Last Big East regular season game. Forever. Considering Pitt doesn’t do much in the way of Chicagoland recruiting, there’s not going to be much of an interest in future scheduling with DePaul. After a brief glimmer of hope at not finishing in dead last in the Big East, they are right there for a 5th straight year.
