Research Notes

  • Rotnei Clarke scored 24 points Saturday but missed a potential game-winning 3-point field goal with five seconds remaining. Over the last two Men's Basketball Championships, players are now 1-for-19 (5.3 percent) on potential game-tying or go-ahead shots in the final 10 seconds of games. The only make in such situations was by Vander Blue in Marquette's second round win over Davidson.

  • Marquette has won its two games in the 2013 Men's Basketball Championship by a combined 3 points and has excelled in the final five minutes of both games. The Golden Eagles have outscored their opponents by 10 points in the final five minutes of their first two tournament games, with Vander Blue and Jamil Wilson combining for 17 of Marquette's 29 points during that time period.
