Marquette Falls in a Heartbreaker

Yikes. That was rough. In a back and forth game, it was eventually the Stanford Cardinal that came out ahead in one of the best games the tournament has had to offer so far. They topped the Golden Eagles in overtime, 82-81.

They went into overtime tied at 71, and then traded a few 3 pointers in overtime before a jumper from one of the Lopez boys with 1.3 seconds to go gave the Cardinal the final lead of the game. Jerel McNeal had 30 points in the losing effort for Marquette.

It's a tough way to go, but Marquette easily would have deserved to be Sweet Sixteen teams. They had a great season, and it's a shame it couldn't have continued further.

(In other shocking news, the Bucks beat the Cavs 108-98 tonight).
