  1. On March 23, 2016, the Big Ten Conference and Notre Dame announced the Fighting Irish would become a men's ice hockey affiliate beginning with the 2017–18 season. Notre Dame had been a member of Hockey East, and the move saves travel time and renews rivalries with former CCHA and WCHA members.

The Badgers go up 47-43 after Nigel Hayes makes a free-throw to lock up the victory over the Panthers. Elite 90; Feedback. The highest δ 18 O values for the study units (ca. 8) are equal to or heavier than those of coeval high-latitude surface seawater (−4.0‰ to −2.6‰; Mii et al., 2012), indicating that seep carbonates with δ 18 O values approaching this peak must have largely evaded later diagenetic overprints.

The Golden Eagles lost, 91-90, to St. John's on Senior Day as the ball ended up in their fifth option's hands on the final play of double-overtime.

Go-to guy Todd Mayo, who sent the game into overtime with a buzzer-beating shot and scored 17 of his 20 points in the second half and overtime, was not available because he had fouled out with 19.5 seconds left.

Typically, coach Buzz Williams allows his players to go against a non-established defense without the flow being interrupted by a timeout. But without Mayo to attempt another fearless shot, Williams called time with 13.9 seconds remaining to draw up the last play.

In order, the options were Davante Gardner, Jake Thomas, Jamil Wilson and Deonte Burton. Point guard Derrick Wilson, whom teams typically ignore defensively because he is a 39.2% shooter, was not in the plan. But when Jamil Wilson passed out of a double-team to Derrick Wilson, the wide-open shot from the corner had no chance.

And neither do the Golden Eagles (17-14, 9-9 Big East) for a ninth consecutive NCAA Tournament bid unless they somehow win the Big East tournament. As the No. 6 seed, they will play their first game at 8:30 p.m. Thursday at Madison Square Garden against Providence or Xavier.

Absent one of the biggest shockers in conference history, Marquette would then play an NIT first-round game either Tuesday, March 18 or Wednesday, March 19 at the Al McGuire Center because the university is hosting NCAA second- and third-round games at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

So, for all practical purposes, Gardner, Thomas, Jamil Wilson and Chris Otule played their last real home game and will become the first Marquette senior class to miss the NCAA Tournament since 2005.

The Golden Eagles ended the regular season with three straight losses, the last two in double-overtime. They were 2-4 in extra-period games.

Regarding the last play and his decision to call time, Williams said, 'We needed the first, best basket with 13.9 seconds left. Typically we don't call a timeout. You want to play in a broken floor. But with them switching from man to zone and Todd not in the game, I wanted to choreograph it a little bit.'

Williams let his guys play at the end of regulation, when they scored six points in the last 11 seconds to tie the game.

Down, 72-66, in those final 11 ticks, the Golden Eagles seemed so out of it that Gardner (21 points) already had come off the floor to an ovation. But after two free throws, Thomas stole an inbound pass and laid the ball in.

Marquette immediately fouled Orlando Sanchez, who missed the front end of a one-and-one. Mayo, who bailed out the Golden Eagles several times this season with clutch shooting, made the buzzer-beating jumper from the lane to create overtime.

The Golden Eagles got the ball into Mayo's hands again at the end of the first overtime, but he turned the ball over.

Statistically, Marquette was lucky to be in the game at all. The Red Storm (20-11, 10-8) had 12 steals, shot 51% and had three players — Jakarr Sampson, D'Angelo Harris and Rysheed Jordan — score 20 points and likely played itself into the NCAA Tournament after beginning the Big East season 0-5.

All in all, the last regular-season shot for Marquette was very much like its disappointing year.

'Up and down,' Williams said. 'We've always hung around and fought. The only time we weren't in a game is when we were at St. John's (74-59 on Feb. 1). Then we went 5-2 over the next seven and lost the last two in double-overtime by one point.'
