MARQUETTE 49, No. 15 GEORGETOWN 48
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Davante Gardner made two free throws with 8.3 seconds left and Marquette had to hang on while Georgetown missed a deciding free throw.
With Marquette leading 49-46, Greg Whittington of the Hoyas was fouled by Trent Lockett on a baseline 3-point shot with 2.3 seconds left. He made the first two free throws and after Marquette coach Buzz Williams called a timeout, hit the front of the rim on the final attempt.
Lockett grabbed the rebound, but missed two free throws and the game ended without the Hoyas attempting a final shot.
Lockett and Vander Blue had 12 points each for the Golden Eagles.
