Louisville knocks off Marquette

Lousiville shocked Marquette tonight in the Big East quarterfinals, 84-71. Despite it being close throughout the game, the Cardinals were in control. Louisville will play the winner of Notre Dame/South Florida tomorrow at 9pm ET.

Darius Johnson-Odom had 23 points and 6 rebounds for Marquette, and he was a key leader for them throughout the whole year. I fully expect Marquette to be in the NCAA Tournament.

For Louisville, Peyton Siva had 18 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists. Rick Paterno’s team looked cool, calm, and collective this game and I am really excited for tomorrow’s game pending a Notre Dame win tonight.

Here’s the box score of the game.
