Dominic James, senior point guard for Marquette, broke his foot against UConn on February 25th, which could be a dangerous factor for his career and hopes for the NBA Draft. 

After surgery, James felt he could play against Missouri.

During the game, he played for seven minutes, and wasn't able to shoot. With 5.5 seconds to go in the second half, the score was 81-79, Marquette trailing, Hayward stepped on the line passing the ball in and was called for a violation.

A sad ending for Marquette, who was knocked out of the tournament.
