VANDER BLUE'S buzzer-beater came at the end of the first half. For a change, Marquette didn't need one at the end of the game. After sweating through a pair of edge-of-your-seat comebacks in the NCAA Tournament, Blue and the Golden Eagles figured out how to put one away early, earning Marquette's first trip to the Elite Eight since 2003 with a 71-61 win over Miami on Thursday night in Washington. Blue, who spurred the rallies that beat Davidson by one and Butler by two, finished with 14 points.

Mike Deane, who coached Siena to third place in this year's NIT, was named the new coach at Marquette yesterday. "People said it would be tough for me to follow in the footsteps of Al McGuire and Kevin O'Neill, but those are the reasons I wanted to come here," Deane said at a news conference. "I see Marquette as a gigantic step forward professionally for me. " McGuire coached Marquette to the NCAA championship in 1977. O'Neill rejuvenated the program in his five seasons and took the Warriors to two straight NCAA tournaments before leaving this week to take the head coaching job at Tennessee.

TWO WEEKS of struggle had begun to raise questions about Louisville's ability to contend in the Big East. And while some concerns remain to be addressed over the second half of their league schedule, the No. 12 Cardinals reclaimed some of their swagger with Sunday's 70-51 rout of No. 25 Marquette in Louisville. Russ Smith scored 18 points, Peyton Siva added 14 and Louisville shot 52 percent to run away from Marquette. The Cardinals' reserves helped out by outscoring the Golden Eagles' by 19-10 - 21 points below Marquette's average coming in. That contribution helped snap Louisville (18-4, 6-3)

MILWAUKEE - The concern for Villanova coach Jay Wright when his team arrived Saturday for its game against Marquette was making sure that there was no hangover from the Wildcats' loss to Xavier, that they were completely focused on the speedy and scrappy Golden Eagles. The top-ranked Wildcats allayed his concerns. They got off to a hot start, shot 57.7 percent from the field, placed four players in double figures, and shrugged off 17 turnovers in an 89-79 Big East victory before a crowd of 19,043 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

MILWAUKEE - Jay Wright knows what some people were thinking, that Villanova might have been better off losing a game after rising to the No. 1 ranking so he would have his players' full attention in fixing some mistakes to help the Wildcats prepare for March. But Wright doesn't subscribe to that sort of thinking. He said Friday that the Wildcats made a plethora of little mistakes including "defensive assignments" and "unintelligent fouls" Wednesday night against No. 5 Xavier that added up to a 90-83 loss on the road.

NEW YORK - If Villanova designed a blueprint for what it had to accomplish to win its first Big East tournament championship since 1995, the Wildcats couldn't have done it any better than they did Thursday against Marquette. The fourth-ranked Wildcats controlled their Big East quarterfinal game relatively early with amazing efficiency from three-point range and strong defense that kept the Golden Eagles off the scoreboard for nearly seven minutes, rolling to their 13th straight win, 84-49, at Madison Square Garden.

NEW YORK - Barely 6 minutes into its quarterfinal game of the Big East Tournament yesterday, Villanova had built a double-digit lead over upset-minded Marquette. This was precisely the formula Jay Wright had preached to his top-seeded team beforehand, the easiest way to cut the legs from under a tired, upset-oriented team before adrenaline could do its magic. Defend the arc, where Marquette had lived the night before against Seton Hall. Rebound, make threes in transition. Gas them.

IF VILLANOVA continues to shoot threes like it has during the Big East season, the Wildcats are going to be a very, very tough out in the NCAA Tournament. The No. 6 Wildcats hit Marquette with 11-for-21 shooting from the arc Saturday and won comfortably in Milwaukee, 87-76. 'Nova (25-2, 12-2 Big East) has complete control of the conference race heading into the final 2 weeks of the regular season. Marquette (11-15, 3-11) was undermanned with just six scholarship players, but good offense is good offense.
