Marquette Earns Comeback Win Over WVU

Posted:

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Jae Crowder scored 26 points and No. 10 Marquette, after benching Darius Johnson-Odom and two other starters in the first half for breaking team rules, overcame a double-digit deficit to beat West Virginia 61-60 on Friday night.

Johnson-Odom, the team's leading scorer, sat out the first half along with Junior Cadougan and Vander Blue due to an undisclosed violation of team rules. Still, the Golden Eagles (24-5, 13-3 Big East) won their fifth straight and 12th in the last 13 games.

Marquette fell behind by 15 early in the second half, but Crowder and Johnson-Odom led a 24-8 run and Marquette overtook the Mountaineers (17-12, 7-9).

Cadougan's layup put Marquette ahead to stay, 54-53, with 4:17 remaining. West Virginia had a chance to win it, but Darryl "Truck" Bryant missed a wild, off-balance shot from the baseline with 2 seconds left.

Bryant led West Virginia with 25 points.
