Kamar Baldwin scored 19 of his 31 points in the final eight minutes, helping No. 13 Butler rally to beat Marquette 89-85 in overtime Friday night.
A steal and a block with the game well in hand for Kansas sparked the brawl that ensued as time expired.

Seth Greenberg and Dan Dakich tip off the podcast with Baylor head coach Scott Drew to talk about what he said to his team when they came in at No. 1 in the AP Top 25, how the players reacted (7:29), how he's keeping his team focused ahead of playing Florida, what he thought of the program when he took over 17 years ago, why he loves Seth and Dan (16:25), and the team's tribute to the Immortal Ten. Later, the guys discuss Butler losing two in a row (21:10), Kentucky rallying after John Calipari was tossed at Arkansas, if Cole Anthony will play again in college (29:10), and Mike Krzyzewski complaining about freedom of movement (36:38).
The Blue Devils had won nine in a row, but they dropped out of the Power Rankings' top 10 after losing to Clemson and Louisville.

Seth Greenberg and Dan Dakich tip off the podcast by discussing the triumph of Baylor's player evaluation, Duke as possibly the only great team in the country (8:48), San Diego State being a more consistent program than UCLA (11:39), a Gonzaga update (18:14), Butler-Seton Hall and what the NCAA can learn from MLB. Later, the guys welcome Arkansas head coach Eric Musselman and his wife Danyelle to talk about the unglamorous coaching lifestyle, how Danyelle handles fans heckling Eric (36:00), how they met (45:17) and Eric taking his shirt off after big wins (49:42).
