Marquette[2-1] had taken a 3 point lead when Jake Thomas rebounded a Junior Cadougan missed three and put it back in while being fouled. His FT put MU up 70-67 with 30.9 seconds left. An Erik Fromm tip in cut the lead to 70-69 with 12 seconds to go when Clarke fouled Cadougan on the inbounds play with 8 seconds to play.

Cadougan made the first FT but missed his second free throw. Butler had no timeouts so they rebounded the miss and gave the ball up to Clark who dribbled the ball up court against the double team Marquette defense of G Derrick Wilson and F Jamil Wilson before hitting the three pointer with Derrick Wilson all over him.

Butler was lead by Kyle Marshall who had 24 points and nine rebounds for Butler. MU was lead by Vander Blue who scored 21 points.

Vander Blue led MU with 21 pts.

Steve Taylor grabs a loose ball dribbles down the court and finishes with authority.
