Brown @ Creighton
Current Records: Brown 3-1; Creighton 3-0
What to Know
The Creighton Bluejays will take on the Brown Bears at 3:15 p.m. ET Friday at Virgin Islands Sport & Fitness Center. Coming off of a win even when the odds were against them, the Bluejays have to be feeling especially confident now that the spread is in their favor.
Creighton netted a 77-69 victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Tuesday. Four players on Creighton scored in the double digits: guard Ryan Nembhard (22), forward Ryan Hawkins (15), guard Alex O'Connell (13), and center Ryan Kalkbrenner (12). That makes it three consecutive games in which Ryan Hawkins has had at least ten rebounds.
Meanwhile, Brown simply couldn't be stopped on Tuesday, as they easily beat the Johnson & Wales Griffins at home 98-47.
This next contest looks promising for Creighton, who are favored by a full 10.5 points. They may be expected to win, but bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.
Their wins bumped Creighton to 3-0 and the Bears to 3-1. Hawkins will be someone to keep an eye on after he posted a double-double on 15 points and ten boards in addition to five dimes on Tuesday. Let's see if he can build on that strong performance or if Brown's defense can bottle him up.
