Morant's triple-double leads Murray St upset over Marquette

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) The game was in hand for Murray State and sensational point guard Ja Morant, who dominated Marquette in every way. With a chance to make some NCAA Tournament history, Morant's coach told him to hit the boards and grab the rebound that would push him to an elusive triple-double.

Morant went up for a missed shot, snatched the ball away from an eager teammate, and that was it. Murray State fans began chanting "Tri-ple dou-ble!" to celebrate an upset in the first round of the West Region.

Morant seized the moment on college basketball's big stage, slicing through Marquette with 16 assists, 17 points and 11 rebounds as Murray State trounced the fifth-seeded Golden Eagles 83-64 on Thursday.
