We’ve got some elite college basketball action taking place this afternoon, as the #7 ranked Creighton Bluejays will head into a hostile environment to take on the #22 ranked Xavier Musketeers. These two teams are streaking in totally opposite directions, so it will be very interesting to see how this Big East showdown shakes out.
Every since losing to the #1 ranked Villanova Wildcats, the Bluejays have been on fire. They’ve won their last four games, including a 75-64 victory over #12 Butler. Creighton is now 17-1 overall and their 4-1 conference record is good for second place in the Big East.
On the other side of the spectrum, the Musketeers are going through a rough patch. It’s been against brutally tough competition, but Xavier has dropped their last two games. They lost 79-54 against #3 Villanova and 83-78 against #12 Butler. Both of these contests were on the road, so they’ve gotta be itching to get back home to try to right the ship.
A major key for Xavier’s (13-4, 3-2 Big East) return to the win column will be slowing down Creighton’s high-octane attack. The Bluejays can light up the scoreboard with the best of them, as their 87.6 points per game average is 10th in the country.
Now that you know a little bit about the matchup, let’s break down all of the ways you can watch the game.
