WASHINGTON (AP) - Jamil Wilson scored 16 points, Vander Blue and Davante Gardner had 14 apiece, and Marquette advanced to the Elite Eight for the first time since 2003 with a 71-61 win over Miami on Thursday night.
 
The third-seeded Golden Eagles took a double-digit lead in the first half and never relinquished it, quite the contrast from their nail-biters earlier in the NCAA tournament. They shot 54 percent from the field and held the Hurricanes to 35 percent. Miami missed 18 of 26 3-point attempts.
 
Marquette (26-8) will face either top-seeded Indiana or No. 4 Syracuse in the East Regional final on Saturday.
 
Shane Larkin scored 14 points for the second-seeded Hurricanes (29-7), who matched the best NCAA run in school history.
