Creighton has claimed the last two meetings with Butler to even the series history at 3-3. Hinkle Fieldhouse, however, has not been kind to the Bluejays. Creighton has suffered consecutive losses to Butler in Indianapolis over the past two seasons.
Butler is 2-8 in the Big East and has been working with just seven scholarship players for most of the season. Six of Butler’s 10 players are freshman and the Bulldogs are expected to be without starters Tori Schickel and Michelle Weaver on Friday. Also consider that freshman Emmy Schabel has played just four minutes this season and the rotation goes seven deep.
Creighton is 5-6 in conference play and 11-12 overall.
