Murray State is No Match for Marquette

Murray State’s hopes of making its first trip to the regional semifinals have been smashed. Number 3 seed Marquette held on for a 62-53 victory over Murray State, sending the Golden Eagles to the West Regional semifinals Thursday in Phoenix. Isaiah Canaan had 16 points and 6 rebounds for the 6th seeded Racers, who fell just short of their first trip to the regional semifinals for the second time in three years (Murray State lost to Butler 54-52 in 2010). Donte Poole, Murray State’s second-leading scorer, managed only 7 points, which is half his average. Poole was playing with a nose broken he got after being elbowed during Thursday’s game.
