After falling out of the Associated Press Top-25 Creighton closes the home schedule by hosting St. John’s. The Bluejays are 9-7 in the BIG EAST after losses last week to Providence and Villanova.
“We just have to get to playing the way we started the season”, said senior forward Cole Huff. “We have had some injuries and a few close games that have not gone our way but we are a veteran team and we just have to lead.”
St. John’s is 13-16 on the season, including a home win over No. 13 Butler and a 33-point romp at Syracuse. The Red Storm are 7-9 in BIG EAST play and in a heated race to avoid the play-in round for seeds 7-10 during next week’s tournament at Madison Square Garden.
Tipoff in the CenturyLink Center is 7:00p.m. The game will be carried by the CBS Sports Network.
