MILWLAUKEE - Two things loom large over the Marquette campus: the Catholic faith and basketball. For people in both camps, Thursday was a very holy night.

Dean Rosko is an old pro on the church organ, so don't expect him to miss a note. But don't be surprised if he does.

“My phone lives in a console drawer while I'm playing, so… occasionally, I'll be checking."

It's a rare occasion when the holy calendar overlaps with the basketball calendar. So if Rosko was playing to a less than packed house, the game is why.

Hundreds of fans packed Marquette's annex, and their prayers were with a decidedly different intention.
