NOTES: Marquette is assured of the coveted double-bye when the Big East Tournament commences next week in New York City. Since the Big East expanded in 2005-06, Marquette is the only school in the conference to advance to at least the quarterfinals of the championship in each of those seasons. ... Entering the game, Mack led the Big East and ranked fifth in the nation in free throw percentage (.904). ... Blue has increased his scoring average from 8.4 per game in 2011-12 to 14.0 in 2012.
