Marquette falls to No. 4 Villanova, 94-85 in OT
Question of the Day
But the Golden Eagles couldn’t capitalize on the junior guard’s late heroics.
Ryan Arcidiacono had 20 points and 11 assists, and coolly guided No. 4 Villanova in the extra session of a 94-85 win Saturday that snapped Marquette’s 20-game home winning streak against Big East opponents.
“Fought really hard to get it to overtime, then once we got into overtime they scored every possession,” coach Buzz Williams said. “We did not get a stop in the last five minutes of the game, and worked incredibly hard to get it to that point.”
Mayo and Steve Taylor, Jr., played huge roles in getting the Golden Eagles to that point. They also played key roles in Marquette’s 80-72 win in overtime at Georgetown earlier in the week, including Mayo’s 3 to tie it with 6 seconds left in regulation.
On Saturday, Villanova (17-2, 6-1) turned away every run - until the end of regulation. The Wildcats kept it interesting after missing 5 of 7 from the free throw line in a stretch in the final 1:11.
Mayo hit all three free throws - the last one tantalizingly bouncing on the rim a couple times before falling through for a 77-77 tie.
A layup by Villanova’s Tony Chennault with 1 second left in regulation was waved off by the officials after Taylor drew a charging foul.
Villanova coach Jay Wright wasn’t happy, but respected the call.
“I was so happy that it worked, and then I was so crushed when the call was made,” he said. “I know (the official has) got great integrity. I was still mad at him, but I know he has great integrity.”
Villanova took control in overtime.
