#6 West Virginia 63, Marquette 62

Only watched the final few minutes as we were tuned into the Badger bowl game, but this loss is a heartbreaker. Marquette should have had an upset of #6 WVU and couldn't hold on to it.

From CrackedSidewalks.com said it better than I could while also watching the Shalala Bowl:

MU managed to lose a 5 point lead in the final minute, three times having the ball, making 1 point at the line out of a potential 6 points, and allowing WVU to score at will.

A shame, MU played well for 38+ minutes and deserved to win....something we've seen and heard several times before this year. MU slips to 0-1 in the Big East and 9-4 overall. The Golden Eagles were led by senior sensation Lazar Hayward who posted another 20+ point performance and seems to have found his offensive touch from the outside.
