I remember seeing who won this Georgetown-Marquette game on TV, but I don't really recall who it was, and more to the point, that's not important right now.

We were so fortunate that this drawn out final minute was actually good, because normally it's an eight-point lead that takes 10 minutes to conclude.
So enjoy it this time, people. Come tournament time, a good lot of these games' final minutes will make the airline delays look manageable.
