Big East Basketball Wrap-Up: No. 15 Marquette Defeats Seton Hall, 66-59

The only Big East basketball game on Tuesday was the Marquette Golden Eagles vs. the Seton Hall Pirates. Marquette won their seventh Big East win in a row, 66-59.

Marquette needed a comeback to win this one. Seton Hall led the game by as many as 11 in the first half and carried a 30-26 lead at the half. Marquette took the lead with 12:16 left to play in the second half and didn't lose it. The major difference in the game was at the free throw line. Marquette only outrebounded Seton Hall by four but held a 28-6 lead at the free throw line and outscored the Pirates by 16 at the charity stripe. Seton Hall also cooled off from the field in the second half by only shooting 37.5% after hitting at a 41.9% clip in the first half.

Marquette was led by 20 points and 12 rebounds from Jae Crowder. Vander Blue and Darius Johnson-Odom also scored in double figures for the Golden Eagles. Seton Hall got 16 points from Herb Pope and 13 points from Fuquan Edwin. With the loss, Seton Hall has dropped five Big East games in a row after a 4-1 start in league play.
