So it happened.

Marquette’s jumper clanged off the rim, Stan Heath gave one big fist pump and the players threw a party at half court.

USF pulled off an unlikely upset of No. 8 Marquette with a 57-56 victory tonight at the Sun Dome.

The hero? Had to be Jesus Verdejo, who scored 21 points on 9-for-16 shooting.

Marquette, who was undefeated in the Big East coming into the game, falls to 20-4 on the season.
