Vander Blue's Layup with :01 Left Lifts Marquette Over Davidson

Vander Blue, Marquette’s best player, struggled through a rough afternoon 5-of-15 – but his layup with :01 left lifted the Golden Eagles over upset-minded Davidson, 59-58.

Davidson, a 14 seed, led for the majority of the game – and by five with :30 left – but 3rd-seeded Marquette rallied in the final minute with a flurry of 3-pointers. Marquette ended the game on a 13-5 run.

The Marquette victory saves face for the Big East, which was looking at an 0-2 start. Pittsburgh was annihilated by Wichita State, 73-55, in what could be Jamie Dixon’s final game with the Panthers.
