After being delayed a day by the East Coast snow storm, the Marquette Golden Eagles knocked off St. John’s on Sunday, 78-73 in Big East action.
The game was moved from Saturday night at Madison Square Garden to the much-smaller Carnesseca Arena in Queens on Sunday afternoon. Only about one-thousand fans saw the contest.
Marquette led by ten points with eight minutes left to play but St. John’s almost caught up. Frederico Mussini missed a potential game-tying three-pointer in the final minute as Marquette held on.
The Golden Eagles won despite turning the ball over 22 times. Duane Wilson scored a game-high 17 points for Marquette.
