A Friday night update on all things Championship Week with an eye on the bracket..
- Miami, the Ohio version, almost caused havoc by knocking Kent State out of the MAC tournament. But the Golden Flashes managed to pull of a 49-47 win, ensuring that at least for another day the MAC is a one bid league.
A companion to our daily Three Stars of the Day, we present the top three Games of the Night.
Big East (27-5, 15-3)
In one of the most exciting and well played games of the weekend, Georgetown (24-4, 14-3) stole a win from Marquette, 70-68 in overtime. The win allowed the Hoyas to keep pace with Louisville for first place in the Big East. Fifth year senior Patrick Ewing Jr. seems to be the heart and soul of this team. Not blessed with the size of his father, his blue collar work ethic helped spark this come-from-behind victory. Meanwhile, Roy Hibbert and Jonathan Wallace filled the stat sheet with twenty points apiece.
