PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Steve Wojciechowski knows his team is lucky to leave Providence with a victory, but it's one he's certainly happy to have.
After blowing an early 12-point lead and trailing by eight with 6:33 to go, Marquette scored 15 of the final 21 points -- including redshirt sophomore guard Duane Wilson's go-ahead layup with 31 seconds left -- to pull off a stunning 65-64 upset of No. 8 Providence on Tuesday.
"For our young team, starting three freshmen, to come in here off of a couple tough losses, (I'm) very proud of our guys," said Wojciechowski, who is in his second season as Golden Eagles coach.
