SU couldn’t bounce back from their loss against Georgetown as they lost their second game in a row to Marquette. SU (22-6, 10-5) ended up losing 74-71 to the Golden Eagles (20-7, 11-4) who now move ahead of the Orange in the Big East standings. Here are 3 thoughts from the game:

1. Free Throws: SU had a fine free throw shooting percentage-they shot 71.4 percent from the line-but they were unable to get to the line enough. They shot 7 free throws while Marquette shot a whopping 35 free throws on the night. If the Orange wants to get back on a winning track, they will have to do so without fouling.

What to watch for as the Big East gets set for tip-off at its end-of-the-year tournament at Madison Square Garden.

The Favorite - Syracuse

No one in the Big East combines raw ability with length and athleticism like the Orange do.

The Dark horse - Cincinnati

The Bearcats have the guards to make a run and create mismatches with their small lineup.

Knocked out early - Notre Dame

Had a big win over SU, but ND relies too much on the long ball. If they're not falling the Irish will have a short stay in New York City.
