By JIM O'CONNELL, AP Basketball WriterNEW YORK (AP) -- Jae Crowder hit a 3-pointer from the corner with 6.3 seconds to play and No. 11 Marquette beat Washington 79-77 in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night. Darius Johnson-Odom had 23 points to lead the Golden Eagles (8-0) in an up-and-down game that included 15 lead changes and four ties over the final 12 minutes. Crowder, who finished with 18 points, hit his only 3-pointer of the game in four attempts 9 seconds after Terrence Ross had given the Huskies (4-3) a 77-76 lead with a nice move in the lane when he was closely guarded by two Marquette players. Washington had a chance at one more lead change but Abdul Gaddy's long jumper at the buzzer was well off the mark. Ross had 19 points to lead the Huskies, who have lost three of four and will remain in New York to face No. 7 Duke on Saturday, also in Madison Square Garden. Taking advantage of some porous defense, both teams scored time and again in the second half on drives and moves down low. That suddenly changed with about 5 minutes to go when both teams started playing defense, forcing each other to use up most of the 35-second shot clock. Washington finished with a 46-32 rebound advantage, including 18-11 on the offensive end -- which led to a 19-6 advantage in second-chance points. But Marquette, which lost center Chris Otule to an injury in the game's opening minutes, was able to stay in the game by forcing 16 turnovers that were converted into 10 points. The Golden Eagles had 10 points on the break while Washington didn't score at all that way. Marquette was 19 of 27 at the free throw line while Washington was 5 of 10. C.J. Wilcox had 13 points for the Huskies and Aziz N'Diaye had four points and 13 rebounds.
