What to Know

Get ready for a Big East battle as the Creighton Bluejays and the Marquette Golden Eagles will face off at 3 p.m. ET Sunday at CHI Health Center Omaha. These two teams come into the matchup bolstered by wins in their previous games.

While not quite a landslide, the game between Creighton and the DePaul Blue Demons this past Thursday was still a pretty decisive one as the Bluejays wrapped it up with a 71-59 win on the road. Among those leading the charge for Creighton was forward Ryan Hawkins, who dropped a double-double on 25 points and 11 rebounds. That makes it three consecutive games in which Hawkins has had at least 11 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Marquette had enough points to win and then some against the Georgetown Hoyas this past Wednesday, taking their contest 77-66. Forward Kur Kuath and guard Kam Jones were among the main playmakers for Marquette as the former had 15 points along with three blocks and the latter shot 5-for-10 from beyond the arc and finished with 19 points.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Creighton is expected to win a tight contest. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with the Bluejays, who are 12-12-1 against the spread.

The wins brought Creighton up to 17-8 and the Golden Eagles to 17-9. A couple defensive stats to keep an eye on: Creighton have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 39%, which places them 16th in college basketball. Marquette is not quite as good, but they are no chumps, either: they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 40.10%, which places them 31st in college basketball.
