HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -Jimmy Butler's driving shot with 2.4 seconds left gave Marquette a 70-68 win over No. 19 Connecticut on Saturday.
Butler finished with 21 points and Lazar Hayward scored 20 for the Golden Eagles, who won their first road game of the season.
Darius Johnson-Odom added 15 for Marquette (13-8, 4-5 Big East), which leads the nation in 3-point shooting and hit 9 of 24 shots from behind the arc against reeling UConn (13-8, 3-5).
Jerome Dyson had 18 points for UConn, which has lost two straight after beating then No. 1-Texas a week ago. Kemba Walker added 15 points and Stanley Robinson 13 for the hot-and-cold Huskies, who were blown out at Providence on Wednesday.
The Huskies were without head coach Jim Calhoun, who has missed four consecutive games on a doctor-ordered medical leave.
