Creighton coach Greg McDermott says rebounding remains a priority as the Bluejays prepare to host fifth-ranked Xavier on Tuesday night in Big East action.
After getting pounded by Seton Hall and Villanova on the glass the Bluejays responded by outrebounding DePaul 43-25 in Saturday’s 88-66 victory.
“I think we are fundamentally a better rebounding team than we have shown recently”, said McDermott. We don’t have guys who can go up and get it at the top of the square and obviously we need to add that in the future but that is who we are right now.”
Creighton is 6-5 and in a three way tie for fourth in the Big East standings. Xavier is 9-2 and alone in second place.
