Sunday afternoon's game between Louisville and Marquette took a cruel twist on Wednesday when Marquette's Dominic James went down with a season-ending foot injury. Marquette has been one of the most talented perimeter teams in the country with Jerel McNeal, Wesley Matthews and James, but they are not a very deep team and they may not be able to recover from this blow.
