Crowder's Clutch Three Keeps Marquette Unbeaten

Darius Johnson-Odom hit a three to put Marquette ahead, 57-56, with 10:26 remaining but the game was tied again at 60. Washington later scored six straight to take a 66-63 lead, but Marquette came back and held a 67-66 lead after a fast-break dunk by Crowder.

After several lead changes, a steal by Junior Cadougan led to a three-point play by Johnson-Odom that gave Marquette a 75-73 lead, but Washington scored on a tip-in to tie it with 1:26 left.

Johnson-Odom made one of two foul shots to give Marquette a 76-75 lead with 31 seconds left, and after Washington scored, Crowder hit his game-winner.
