Saturday College Rewind: Marquette secures Big East semi spot, Charlotte wins A-10, and more

Three places in the Big East Tournament semifinals were booked on Saturday, with Georgetown, Marquette and Notre Dame all securing places in Friday’s semis at Red Bull Arena.

Freshman midfielder Patrick Hodan stole the show for the Fighting Irish, recording two goals and an assist to secure Notre Dame a place in the semis, where they will meet the winner of Sunday’s UConn-Villanova quarterfinal.
