Creighton kept things rolling along and moved into 11th place this past week. The Bluejays won a solid contest at Marquette this past week as well 85-70. The Bluejays moved to 12-2 in the Big East with the win and currently sit atop the conference given their head to head domination of Villanova. The Bluejays rank 2nd in the nation with just over 18 assists per game and 6th overall with a team field goal percentage of 49.9%. Doug McDermott leads the Bluejays in scoring with a whopping 25.8 points per game and Chatman and Gibbs control the offense with a combined 8.6 assists per game.
Creighton is hot right now and has been especially solid at home. I like the Bluejays to pull away early in the second half for the win here. McDermott goes for 25+ and Creighton gets away easy with the 12-15 point win at home to get to 13-2 in conference play.
