Marquette defeated Butler, 74-72, in another crazy game. It came down to the final seconds but Marquette was able to hold Butler to move onto the Sweet 16.
Davante Gardner made two free throws with under five seconds left in the second half. That gave Marquette a four point lead over Butler but a goaltending call gave them a two point lead. It was a crazy last three second with turnovers galore but the Golden Eagles were able to stay on top in the end.
Marquette’s Vander Blue scored 29 points.
