Marquette Survives Red Storm

03_10_10_cubillan.jpgNew York — Survive and advance.

That was the overriding theme of Marquette's 57-55 victory over St. John's on Wednesday in the teams' second-round Big East Tournament game at Madison Square Garden.

Having played almost half the game without a foul-plagued Jimmy Butler and been “not good at all” in the second half in coach Buzz Williams' estimation, MU (21-10), nonetheless, got just enough from its seniors in crunch time to beat the Red Storm (17-15) for the second time in two weeks and the 11th straight time overall.

The fifth-seeded Golden Eagles will now face the fourth-seeded and No. 10 Villanova Wildcats - a team that beat MU twice earlier in the season by a total of four points - in a quarterfinal matchup scheduled for 1:25 p.m. Thursday.

“A lot of our wins haven't been very pretty,” said Hayward, who hit 4 of 6 three-pointers and finished with game highs of 20 points and nine rebounds.

“But we're getting wins, and you can't take those wins away from us - no matter how it's getting done. When it's all said and done, there's a 'W' by Marquette, and that's what matters.”

MU led by as many as 14 points in the first half in building a 27-17 lead at intermission.

St. John's, which lost, 63-61, in overtime to the Golden Eagles on Feb. 24, shot just 29.6%.

The Red Storm also had no early answer for Hayward, who had 12 points and six rebounds while playing all 20 minutes in part to make up for the loss of Butler, who sat all but the opening 2 minutes after picking up two fouls.

St. John's came out of the locker room looking like a different team, though, and by the 10-minute, 47-second mark had pulled even with MU.

David Cubillan hit a three, which halted the Red Storm's momentum briefly, but St. John's then responded with a quick 7-0 lead that gave them a 46-42 lead.

The game was tied three different times over the next 4 1/2 minutes until a Paris Horne free throw gave St. John's a 53-52 lead with 2:22 left.

Horne's miss on his first attempt, combined with a D.J. Kennedy miss on the front end of the bonus, though, left the door open for the Golden Eagles.

After a strange sequence in which Darius Johnson-Odom was denied a trip to the free-throw line when the officials ruled he had been passing rather than shooting, MU was given the ball out of bounds.

The tradeoff turned out great for the Golden Eagles.

Hayward freed Cubillan from pesky Malik Boothe with a screen, took the pass from Maurice Acker and knocked down a huge three-pointer from the left wing to put MU ahead, 55-53, with 1:11 remaining.

“I ran the play, it was supposed to be Lazar, but they cheated and I was wide-open,” said Cubillan, who finished with 11 points. “I just shot it and made it.”

Hayward made another hustle play on St. John's ensuing possession when he dived on the floor to tie up Kennedy.

With the possession arrow pointing the Golden Eagles' way, the Red Storm was forced to foul and sent Hayward to the line, where he drained a pair to make it 57-53 with 35.3 seconds left.

St. John's came up empty on the other end again and then had to foul Butler, who missed the front end of the bonus with 19.7 seconds on the clock.

After a bevy of misses, Kennedy scored off one of his own from in close to pull the Red Storm to within 57-55 with 4.1 seconds remaining.

MU got the ball inbounds to Acker after a St. John's timeout, but he too missed the front end of the bonus with 3.4 seconds left.

The Red Storm rebounded, but with Acker hounding Boothe the whole time, the best shot the diminutive guard could get was desperation three from well past half court that fell short.

Acker finished with 10 points for MU, which shot 57.9% in the second half to best the 54.8% effort by St. John's. Butler, meanwhile, was held to three points and three rebounds in 22 minutes.

“Just so happened at the end we were able to make two big plays on both ends,” Williams said. “We're not very good without Jimmy.”

MU will have to be awful good with Butler today in order to beat Villanova, which will be playing without injured forward Taylor King.

It was the Wildcats who beat the Golden Eagles on a buzzer-beating layup in the quarterfinals of last year's tournament, a memory Hayward wants to erase.

“Every time we lose a close game to a team, we feel like we want to get them back,” said Hayward. “It's definitely a familiar role, and we just have to be ready.”
