Marquette Upsets Xavier To Advance To The Third Round

In this East regional matchup, Darius Johnson-Odom and the eleventh seeded Marquette Golden Eagles upset the sixth seeded Xavier Musketeers 66-55 on Friday night in Cleveland. Johnson-Odom led all scorers  as he tallied 19 points on 6-11 shooting. This was the first NCAA Tournament victory for Marquette in two years  and they prevented Xavier to make any sort of run this evening. The Golden Eagles will play for the right to advance to Newark and the Sweet Sixteen on Sunday (round 3 television schedule).
Gus Johnson and Len Elmore have the recap from Quicken Loans Arena.
