Marquette Bounced From Big East Tourney

      NEW YORK, NY (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Marquette men's basketball team was one-and-done at the Big East Conference Tournament, losing to Xavier last night 68-to-65 in New York.     The loss appeared to eliminate any hope for an N-C-A-A Tournament bid for the first time in Coach Buzz Williams' six seasons with the Golden Eagles.  At 17-and-15, Williams now hopes Marquette can get an N-I-T bid on Sunday night.  In his words, "I want to keep playing."    Marquette had a one-point lead midway through the second half against Xavier.  The Musketeers then went ahead for good with a 10-to-3 run.  Marquette lost despite shooting 58-percent.  They committed 15 turnovers, and did not get to the free throw line nearly as much as the Musketeers.     The Eagles hit 8-of-14 from the stripe, while Xavier was 17-of-23.  Justin Martin scored 19 points to help the third-seeded Musketeers improve to 21-and-11.    They'll advance to tonight's Big East semi-finals against Number-two Creighton.    Deonte Burton scored a career-high 23 points for Marquette.  Todd Mayo added 21.
