Marquette-Tennessee: Volunteers Eek Out Victory in Close Game

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IDecember 17, 2008

It was close for most of the game, but the Marquette Golden Eagles never could quite get over the hump.

The score was tied at 32 heading into halftime, and Marquette did all they could to stay in the game.

However, it just wasn't enough. The end result: an 80-69 win for Bruce Pearl and the Tennessee Volunteers.

Because I didn't get to see the game, and because I'm writing this almost 24 hours after the fact, I'm going to take the easy way out and give you some links.
