Dominic James' career at Marquette is over after the senior guard suffered a broken bone in his foot during last night's 93-82 loss to second-ranked Connecticut. James left the game with about 4-minutes left in the first half and never returned to the game.
Coach Buzz Williams said after the game that James will miss the remainder of the season.
Jerel McNeal scored 26 in the loss for the Golden Eagles, but it wasn't enough to prevent Huskies coach Jim Calhoun from recording his 800th career win. A.J. Price poured in a career high 36 points to lead the second ranked team in the country. Calhoun joined Bob Knight, Dean Smith, Adolph Rupp, Jim Phelan, Mike Krzyzewski and Eddie Sutton as the only men's coaches to win 800 games in Division 1.
U-Conn moved into sole possession of first place in the Big East Conference with the win.
