The Creighton baseball team takes a seven game winning streak and the early lead in the BIG EAST race into the start of a three game home series against Villanova.
The Bluejays are 5-1 in the league race and a much different team than the one that opened the season 1-11.
“If you would have saw this team play the first couple of weekends on the road you wouldn’t recognixe them”, said Creighton coach Ed Servais. “We were in a lot of one run games and could not perform in those games. They are much more poised and confident. The game has slowed down.”
The Bluejays and Wildcats have faced off 10 times, including nine as foes in the BIG EAST. Creighton owns a 9-1, taking all three meetings in Omaha during the 2015 season. Villanova won the first meeting as conference foes in 2014, but the Bluejays have won the last eight straight between the two squads.
