The Marquette Golden Eagles fell to the Georgetown Hoyas 63-55 last night. This loss knocked Marquette out of the top spot in the Big East.
Jamil Wilson scored 13 points in the game and Chris Otule scored 14 points and had 3 blocks.
The turning point of the game was when Golden Eagles head coach Buzz Williams was called for a technical foul in the second half. He was disputing a call that could have gone in favor of either team. Georgetown’s Otto Porter made both free throws then a floater to make the lead 41-34.
Marquette had 12 first half turnovers and no offensive rebounds in the first 20 minutes. This was a big factor in the loss to Georgetown.
Marquette will face Pittsburgh on Saturday.
