Marquette escaped with a win on Saturday against the Seton Hall Pirates by the margin of a single free throw, 73-72. Guard Darryl Morsell was the offensive standout of the game for Marquette, picking up 26 points in addition to five boards.
Meanwhile, everything came up roses for Villanova at home against the Butler Bulldogs on Sunday as the squad secured an 82-42 win. Villanova relied on the efforts of guard Justin Moore, who had 15 points and five assists along with seven rebounds, and guard Collin Gillespie, who shot 5-for-6 from beyond the arc and finished with 17 points and five rebounds.
