Diener Crushes the "Carolina Curse"

It wasn't easy by any stretch, but Marquette found a way to battle back from 7 points down late in the game and force overtime on a Steve Novak 3 pointer with 3 seconds left against East Carolina. In the extra period, senior Travis Diener hit a baseline jumper with 2.6 seconds to win the game for Marquette 71-69. It was only MU's third victory in the state of North Carolina in the history of the program ( see Carolina Curse).

For a complete wrap-up of tonight's game, read Todd Rosiak's article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel as Diener Buries Pirates Curse.
