Syracuse Holds Marquette to 39 Points, Fewest in Regional Final In Shot Clock Era

Marquette had a dreadful offensive performance today, scoring only 39 points. Marquette was 11 for 51 from the field, including an astonishing 2 of 24 from three point range (and the second was made in the final 30 seconds).

That 55-39 score is the lowest score for a team in the regional final in the shot clock era (since 1986 season). It’s also the lowest combined score in a regional final over that time, just under the UCLA vs. Memphis 50-45 game in 2006.

In fact, it’s the lowest score in a regional final since San Francisco was held to 39 points by Bill Walton and the UCLA Bruins in the last of their seven straight title runs.
