Golden Eagles Stunned In Final Ticks

Posted:

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Da'Sean Butler's jumper with 2 seconds left lifted No. 6 West Virginia to a 63-62 victory over Marquette on Tuesday night.

West Virginia (11-0, 2-0 Big East) overcame a five-point deficit in the final minute and its lowest point total of the season to improve to its best start since a Jerry West-led team won 14 straight to begin the 1957-58 season.

Devin Ebanks led the Mountaineers with 19 points, while Kevin Jones added 18 and Butler finished with 17.

Lazar Hayward scored 24 points and Darius Johnson-Odom added 14 for Marquette (9-4, 0-1). The Golden Eagles made 10 of 16 3-pointers but had none over the final 9 minutes.
