What to Know
The #10 Creighton Bluejays are 7-2 against the St. John's Red Storm since December of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Sunday. The Bluejays and St. John's will face off in a Big East battle at noon ET at Carnesecca Arena. Creighton is cruising in on a five-game winning streak while St. John's is stumbling in off of three consecutive losses.
Creighton took their matchup against the Butler Bulldogs last week by a conclusive 81-59 score. Creighton can attribute much of their success to forward Christian Bishop, who had 19 points and five assists along with seven rebounds and four blocks.
Meanwhile, St. John's lost to the Villanova Wildcats on the road by a decisive 71-60 margin. Four players on St. John's scored in the double digits: forward Marcellus Earlington (12), guard Rasheem Dunn (12), guard Greg Williams Jr. (10), and guard Julian Champagnie (10).
The Bluejays are now 22-6 while St. John's sits at 14-14. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Creighton enters the game with only 4.8 steals given up per game on average, good for seventh best in college basketball. But St. John's comes into the contest boasting the second most steals per game in college basketball at 10.1. Ball control might end up being a major factor in this one.
