Marquette remains in Big East title hunt

Jamil Wilson scored all 10 of his points in the second half as 15th ranked Marquette rebounded from a 10-point halftime deficit to beat Rutgers 60-54 and keep their Big East title hopes alive.

Vander Blue scored 22 points and sealed the win with a couple of late free throws.

Marquette (22-7, 13-4) still needs 1st place Georgetown to lose one of its two remaining games (Villanova & Syracuse) and the Golden Eagles must finish out with a win at St. John’s on Saturday to grab at least a share of the Big East title.  Louisville is also even with Marquette at 13-4 and can figure into the title chase as well.
