One and done: Marquette loses in Big East quarterfinals


by WDJT Sports

NEW YORK - The Big East Conference is changing in a major way this offseason. And Marquette's last memory of the old Big East won't be a pleasant one.

The Golden Eagles blew a 13 point first-half lead, then gave up 44 points after halftime in a 73-65 loss to Notre Dame in the Big East Tournament quarterfinals at Madison Square Garden.

Jamil Wilson scored 16 points, and Junior Cadougan added 14.

Pat Connaughton hit six three-pointers for Notre Dame, who advance to face Louisville in the Big East Semifinals Friday night.

Wilson hit a three pointer with 2:50 to play to cut the Notre Dame lead to five, but Connaughton answered with a three of his own that sealed the Golden Eagles' fate.

The NCAA Tournament Selection Show happens Sunday afternoon at 5:00 on CBS 58.
