The Marquette Golden Eagles had a double-bye into the Quarterfinal round of the Big East Tournament, going into their game with Louisville plenty rested. But the Golden Eagles still committed 26 turnovers and lost to the Cardinals 84-71 to fall out of the Big East Tournament.
Darius Johnson-Odom had 23 points, but Louisville held Big East Conference Player of the Year Jae Crowder to just 10 points.
Louisville (24-9) faces No. 23 Notre Dame in tonight’s semifinals.
Marquette now gets some rest and will wait until Sunday evenings selection show to find out who they’ll face in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.
