As of writing, Creighton is up 29-14 over Butler with about 7 minutes left in the first half. Here we are, another excellent opportunity for Creighton to prove themselves on a national stage (FS1 is national, right?). The offense is red hot, as we saw against Nova, but the defense needs to adapt and evolve. The Jays need to pressure Butler into sloppy passes and to not shy away from double teaming in the corners. Let this game serve as a showcase of what we can do and we stay in that mythical top 10. Free throws have also been less than stellar but the loving confines of the Century Link Center are very supportive environments for our shooters. Go Jays!
I got Creighton -3.5 against fellow bloggist Big Hank. Thanks for the free money, idiot.
