Hoyanation, your typical Big East game. Hey, what can you say. There's no night off in the Big East, you can count on that. The Marquette Warriors (1-2) had lost their first two Big East games by very close margins this season. The Warriors could of put their heads down and kept losing but they chose not too. They overcame and the won tonight against the Hoyas (11-2) 62-59. The barrage of three pointers by Player of the Game David Cubillan (6-6) amazing three point shooting became contagious amongst other teammates at key moments in this hard fought game on behalf of both teams. Austin Freeman (20 pts.) lead the Hoyas in scoring tonight and showed lots of leadership and offensive toughness to carry
the Hoyas throughout the game.
#10 Greg Monroe dives and gets possession of the ball in 62-59 loss at Marquette 1.6.10
With a missed free throw by Maurice Acker and big rebound by Greg Monroe at the 29 second mark with the score 59-60 Marquette Austin Freeman dribbled the ball down the court and missed a two pointer with three defenders collapsing on him. Hoyas have to play "smart basketball" all the way to the "last second.". There was time enough for maybe one or two more passes to win this one, but we live and learn life lessons. Jason Clark (7 pts. 2 steals. 4 reb.) was everywhere out on hardwood.
Nice three point shot made by the sophomore sensation Jason Clark at the 4:43 mark to tie the game 53-53 and silence the Warrior roaring crowd. Jason Clark's play has been nothing but outstanding and steady. The Hoyas look to get back on track against the UConn Huskies on Saturay Jan. 9.
