[CHEERING]

ANNOUNCER 1: By Howard. The kickout to Rowsey.

ANNOUNCER 2: And that's the transition-type of attack that Marquette truly--

ANNOUNCER 1: Here's Paschall. Fill booth now. Working against Rowsey. Drives, lays it in.

ANNOUNCER 2: At one point, you thought the Marquette defense was pretty good.

Out of that game, zero points. But averaging 5 points a game, but he's trying to make his presence known.

Seven point lead, Nova. Alley-oop to Paschall, how 'bout that?

Brunson, [INAUDIBLE] to Roundtree!

[WHISTLES]

ANNOUNCER 2: Well, you talked about presence, and no--

Take a look at the length right there on the switch out to Rowsey. He can barely see the rim, let along get a shot off.

ANNOUNCER 1: Here's Anim, and he reverses it, this time with the left hand!

ANNOUNCER 2: Living on the base--

ANNOUNCER 1: Under five 'til the half. He worked it around to the corner to Paschall.

ANNOUNCER 1: The handoff to Brunson. That's too easy.

ANNOUNCER 2: I'll tell you what-- Markus Howard, we talked about him having the score, but he's got to be the Howard-Rowsey show. The other guys are capable, if they're set up, to put the ball in the basket. But it begins with this guy.

ANNOUNCER 1: How about that? How 'bout that shot? And it rolls in by Howard.

ANNOUNCER 2: He's come up a couple of times after hitting the deck hard.
