Marquette knocks off #10 Villanova

If the Golden Eagles didn’t already have a bid to the NCAA Tournament, they should now. Marquette beat Villanova, 80-76, in the quarterfinals of the Big East Championship.

Joe Lunardi had Marquette as a #9 seed before the win, so they should be a sure thing at this point. They have five losses to ranked teams (Wisconsin, West Virginia, Georgetown, Syracuse and Villanova twice) by a total of 19 points, so they play everyone tough. Plus, they have nice wins against Georgetown, Xavier and now Villanova.
