Marquette rebounds for Big East road win

Davante Gardner scored 20 points and Steve Taylor had 14 points and 8 rebounds as the Marquette Golden Eagles earned their first Big East road victory, 80-72 over Georgetown in overtime.

Todd Mayo hit a three-pointer with 6.3 seconds left to tie the game and force overtime.  Then Marquette reeled off 7-straight points to start the overtime, 5 of the 7 from freshman guard John Dawson.  The Golden Eagles hit 8 of 8 from the free throw line in the overtime to put the game on ice.

Marquette (11-8, 3-3 Big East) was down by seven with 3-minutes left.  A 3-point shot from Jake Thomas and a dunk by Jamil Wilson cut the lead to two with just over 2 minutes to play.

Next up, Marquette returns home to face Villanova on Saturday.
