The 20th ranked Creighton Bluejays will try to make it eight road wins in nine tries Wednesday night with a visit to Seton Hall in BIG EAST action. Creighton is in a second place tie with Xavier at 8-4 and visits a Pirate team that is fighting for its NCAA Tournament life. Seton Hall is 5-7 in conference play and 15-9 overall.
“We are going to see a desperate and hungry team on Wednesday night”, said Creighton coach Greg McDermott. “We are going to have to match their physicality and hopefully continue to execute at a high level like we have been recently.”
Creighton limited Seton Hall junior Angel Delgado to 10 points in an 89-75 win over the Pirates in Omaha back in late December.
“He can get 20 points and 20 rebounds on you if you are not careful”, added McDermott. “Our plan the first time against him was good. We got it out of his hands and obviously they are going to adjust to that.”
Tipoff in the Prudential Center is 7:05p.m. The game will be televised by the CBS Sports Network.
