Villanova The Latest Big East Top Seed To Lose, Marquette Advances To Play Georgetown

Marquette blog Anonymous Eagle joined the SBNation platform on Wednesday. Just in time, it seems.

Buzz Williams’ squad continues it’s late-season surge, defeating Villanova 80-76, thanks to its hot-hand beyonf the arc. The Eagles hit 9-of-16 three-pointers on the day, five of which were courtesy of Darius Johnson-Odom, who finished with 24. Lazar Hayward added 20.

Corey Stokes scored 22 for the Wildcats off the bench but it wasn’t enough. After starting 20-1, Villanova has now lost six of their last 10 games. Once considered a possible NCAA one-seed, they’re most likely looking at a three or even a four now.

The Golden Eagles now move on to the semis where they’ll face Georgetown, a winner over top-seed Syracuse in earlier action. That game is scheduled for Friday at 7 p.m. EST.
