LEXINGTON, Ind. (WISH) - "That shot still haunts me to this day," said Marquette guard Vander Blue.
That shot that Blue is referring to is Butler guard Rotnei Clarke's wild buzzer beater last November to beat Marquette 72-71 at the Maui Invitational.
Saturday night when both teams take the floor, Marquette will not only be hungry for a bid to the Sweet 16 but revenge.
"We're just hungry right now. Everybody knows what's at stake," said Blue. "To get a chance to play Butler again, we couldn't ask for nothing else. I know they know we're coming for them."
Inside the Butler locker room, the Bulldogs know exactly what's coming for them; they see a Marquette squad that's improved a lot since November.
"It's going to be a dog fight," said Butler forward Kameron Woods. "Last game, we shot on from deep. We expect that's going to be on their minds and they're going to come out as hungry and as ready to compete as we are."
"They've definitely improved in a lot of areas. Both teams have," added Butler guard Rotnei Clarke. "They're really clicking on all cylinders right now."
