NEW YORK — It might not have been the most dramatic game you will ever see, but there is a good chance Seton Hall’s 81-79 win over Marquette in the Big East Tournament semifinals will be the wildest game you will witness for some time.
NEW YORK — By time the clock strikes midnight (hopefully), we will know if Seton Hall will be playing for their second Big East Tournament title over the past four seasons.
Faced with a 13-point deficit in the closing seconds of the first half, a late Myles Powell three sparked a second half comeback that fell short in the final minute as Seton Hall dropped their second Big East road game, 70-66, to Marquette.
The last time we saw Marquette, the Golden Eagles were in peak form after scoring 90 in a loss at Villanova and dismantling Seton Hall by 20 in Milwaukee.
Marquette is up next for No. 13 Seton Hall as the Pirates look to close out a successful trip to the Midwest and improve to 4-0 in Big East play for the first time since 1992-93.
