Luke Fischer made two free throws with 1.2 seconds left to give the Marquette men an 88-87 victory over Georgetown in the Golden Eagles’ home season finale in Milwaukee.
Fischer poured in a career high 23 points, finishing 9-of-11 from the field and 5-of-6 from the free throw line.
Marquette freshman center Henry Ellenson left midway through the second half with an ankle injury.
The Golden Eagles blew an eleven-point halftime lead, but they prevailed as they traded baskets and the lead near the end before Fischer capped it with his free throws.
Marquette took over sole possession of the number seven seed for next week’s Big East Conference tournament. The Golden Eagles improved to eight-and-nine with the victory.
The Golden Eagles close out the regular season at Butler on Saturday.
