No. 4 Marquette defeated an attempt at upset by UCLA, securing a fourth ticket for a top-10 team to the semifinals in a thrilling 71-69 victory on Monday night at the Maui Invitational.

On Tuesday, the Golden Eagles will play in the semifinals against No. 1 Kansas, No. 2 Purdue, and No. 7 Tennessee.

In the nightcap of the tournament, the Golden Eagles trailed 35–30 at the half, but they turned the tide of the game with a 17–0 run in the second half, taking a 64–59 lead late in the half. However, Marquette missed five straight free throws in the closing seconds, which allowed UCLA to reclaim the lead with a score of 69-68 in the closing seconds.

Sean Jones, though, had a response. With 36.3 seconds left, the sophomore reserve guard made a pull-up 3-pointer to give Marquette a 71-69 lead again.

Marquette won because UCLA’s response fell short and Marquette won.

Bringing Back All-American For Marquette, Tyler Kolek was a secondary scorer despite finishing with nine points and nine assists on a 3-of-7 shooting performance. With 19 points and four rebounds, junior forward David Joplin spearheaded Marquette’s offensive effort. The Golden Eagles overcame a difficult night at the free throw line (10 of 18) with 14 points from Oso Ighodaro and 12 from Kam Jones. The team shot 45.5% from the field overall.

Guard Sebastian Mack, a rookie for UCLA, led the team with 25 points and six rebounds as the Bruins narrowly missed pulling off one of the biggest upsets of the early NCAA season.

Marquette advances to play Kansas, who easily defeated Chaminade 83-56 thanks to a triple-double of 22 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists from senior guard Kevin McCullar Jr. For the senior guard, it’s his second consecutive triple-double.

Purdue and Tennessee play at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, and Marquette plays Kansas at 10:30 p.m. ET. ESPN will air both games.
