Seton Hall beats Marquette 81-79 to reach Big East final

NEW YORK (AP) Instead of a showdown between the Big East's top two scorers, Seton Hall-Marquette devolved into a chippy foul-fest and ended with the league's player of the year coming up short on a potential winning 3.

After 57 fouls - including nine technicals - were called, 85 free throws were shot and three players were ejected, Marquette star Markus Howard had a good look in the waning seconds and a chance to make up for one of his worst games of the season. The shot hit the front of the rim at the buzzer, and Seton Hall advanced to the Big East Tournament championship with an 81-79 victory Friday night in a game that had just about everybody involved struggling to make sense of it all.

"Just so many unusual things happened," Marquette coach Steve Wojciechowski said. "It was the most unusual basketball game I've ever been a part of, and I feel bad for my kids. I wish our kids would have had a chance to decide the game, and their kids, too."
