BOISE, Idaho (AP) -Marquette guard Dominic James will try to make an improbable comeback from a foot injury in the Golden Eagles' NCAA tournament game against Missouri on Sunday.
The school has announced Sunday morning that James was cleared to return to the court. Coach Buzz Williams says in a statement that he wasn't sure how much James would be able to contribute.
James, a steady offensive leader and perhaps the team's best defender, broke the a bone in his left foot on Feb. 25 in the opening minutes of Marquette's loss to Connecticut.
He wasn't expected to return, and the team struggled in his absence before beating Utah State in Friday's first-round NCAA matchup.
