#11 Marquette holds off Washington in a thriller

New York, NY (WKOW-TV)

    Three days after beating Wisconsin at the Kohl Center, Marquette hit a huge shot in the closing seconds to beat Washington 79-77 as part of the Jimmy V Classic in New York City.

Darius Johnson-Odom had 23 points to lead the Golden Eagles (8-0) in an up-and-down game that saw 15 lead changes and four ties over the final 12 minutes.

Crowder, who finished with 18 points, hit his only 3-pointer of the game in four attempts 9 seconds after Terrence Ross had given the Huskies (4-3) a 77-76 lead with a nice move in the lane when he was closely guarded by two Marquette players.

Washington had a chance at one more lead change but Abdul Gaddy's long jumper at the buzzer was well off the mark.

Former Madison Memorial standout Vander Blue had a big slam in the 2nd half - part of his 11 points on the night.
