The Basketball Tournament 2021 Recap: #1 Golden Eagles 71, #9 Playing For Jimmy V 64

An Elam Ender three-pointer gave Jamil Wilson 17 points on the afternoon to lead top seeded Golden Eagles to the 71-64 victory over #9 seed Playing For Jimmy V in the second round of The Basketball Tournament on Monday.

It was a short turnaround for the Marquette alumni squad after playing on Sunday evening, and an even shorter turnaround for the Jimmy V squad as they didn’t tip off their first round contest til the MU game was over. Is that why this was a one point game in favor of Jimmy V at the end of the first quarter, 21-20, and again at halftime, 38-37?
