Because lightning was detected during the match and play couldn't be resumed within three hours from the 1 p.m. CT start of the contest, the matchup is ruled a "no contest" in accordance with NCAA rules.
Since at least 70 minutes of the match were unable to be completed, the statistics from the match will not count and the result will not be reflected in either team's win-loss record.
"He’s really improved. The thing that I struggle with is if he plays again, that counts as his year because he’s right at the percentage mark relative to compliance. He can play again but I have to find peace that it’s the right thing for his future. I still don’t have that because if it was based on his rehab then I would say he’s going to play. The problem with that is if he plays and gets hurt again, he’s done. That’s his season. So I don’t know what’s right."
"Junior is not my biological son but in many respects he is my son," said Williams. "And the thing that I told his mom - he's from a single-parent household outside of the country (Ontario, Canada) - as I was eating in her house in September of Junior's senior year is that I was committed to making sure that I held him to the same standards that she did as she raised him as a single mom.
"He made a mistake yesterday and my decision was to suspend him from this game. That's the end of it. He made a mistake that was not intelligent in nature. It did not hurt anyone, but it was not how his mom raised him, and the commitment I made to her was that I was going to continue to hold him to that same standard."
Similar to our out-of-body experience at Louisville, I don’t think that there’s words to justify the ebb and flow of that game. Tremendously proud of our players’ energy and effort and execution in the second half. But for it to have played out the way that it did relative to the result, from our perspective, I don’t know that there’s any philosophical way to describe it.
We have some of my former Marquette players that will be with us tonight. It will be great to be surrounded by that kind of toughness and grit. I miss those former guys. They made me a better coach and a better man. Thats the beauty of a player coach relationship.
"I've always had one eye," he said. "It didn't happen in the middle of my life; I've had it since birth. If I hadn't had it since birth, it would probably be difficult to adjust to. But I've always been used to it, since I've had it since birth.
"It's not an issue since I've been used to it for what, 21 years of my life already."
"You have to win those games to take those steps," coach Buzz Williams said. "To have people pat you on the back and (say) good job, I don't want to hear all that. I want to win."
