On a day in which the school celebrated the 25th anniversary of its only NCAA championship team, the Hoyas failed to get the kind of victory needed if they are to secure a berth in this year's tournament. The Hoyas paid tribute to the 1984 title team at halftime, with eight players on hand to receive commemorative bowls. Star center Patrick Ewing delivered a recorded message via the giant scoreboard.

€I thought our guys competed at a very high level and the last ten minutes we were hitting on all cylinders on both sides of the floor,€ said Marquette head coach Buzz Williams€
