MILWAUKEE -- Junior Cadougan scored 18 points -- including a buzzer-beating, tying 3-pointer at the end of regulation -- to lead Marquette to a 82-76 overtime win over Connecticut Tuesday night in the Big East Conference opener for both teams.
Cadougan's 3-pointer was the Golden Eagles' first of the night after missing their first 14 from behind the arc.
The game was the first for Connecticut coach Kevin Ollie since he received a five-year, nearly $7 million contract extension on Saturday. Marquette was without head coach Buzz Williams, serving a one-game suspension for NCAA recruiting rules violations announced in August. Assistant Brad Autry filled in.
