Marquette Unleashes Wild Bat to Terrify Friars

Marquette's home-court advantage this season may stem from something other than stellar guard play and accurate shooting.

During Marquette's recent home win against Providence, a rogue bat wreaked havoc when it flew into the BMO Harris Bradley Center and into the faces of the visiting Friars.

Providence's Sidiki Johnson was so shocked that he hit the deck in what would otherwise have been a perfect flop. But, no foul was called. Instead, the DJ cranked up Ozzy Osbourne in an effort to taunt the visitors.

Unfortunately, not every team has Manu Ginobli on their roster to handle this type of situation. Providence surely did not. Eventually, the arena staff was forced to shut off the lights to lure the bat off the court.

After the commotion settled down, Providence lost focus and Marquette finished off the Friars for the 81-71 victory

The Golden Eagles are 14-0 at home entering tonight's contest against Syracuse. If they can keep up this kind of mental fortitude, they'll be tough to beat in March.
