The Marquette Golden Eagles defeated the Providence Friars tonight 79-72. Marquette shot lights out in the 2nd half (they hit 11 of their first 14 attempts and went a ridiculous 9-11 from downtown overall) to pull away from the Friars after a back and forth first half. Jae Crowder had 18 points, while Jamil Wilson had a career high 16 points off the bench.

Wilson gave Marquette a 62-57 edge with 10:45 to play when he hit a jumper from the top and followed that with a 3 from the left corner.

After Gerard Coleman had a basket for Providence, Wilson had consecutive baskets in the lane, pushing the Golden Eagles’ lead to 66-59 with 8:02 left.

Gardner then took over the scoring. He scored in the lane, hit one free throw and a putback made it an 11-point lead with 3:51 remaining.

Bryce Cotton had 28 points to lead all scorers.

Here is the Buzz Williams and Ed Cooley press conference following the game tonight.

Here are some of Ed Cooley’s gems:

“Right now we got puppies, and we are playing against dogs”

“When you lose at home, it just rips my heart out. It feels like someone broke into your house and took your nice china. I like my china. Tea is really good in it”

Hey, check out the @TheWarriorFriar cameo!

So Bryce Cotton was in there with Ed, which was fitting because he was the only one who apparently showed up in the first half today. I love Cotton trying not laugh as Coach Cooley said he would kiss everyone on the lips if they told him PC would be 9-2. “Not a long one though”.
