Off to a 12-0 start for the first time since 2004 the 10th ranked Creighton Bluejays open the Big East race at home Wednesday night against Seton Hall. It opens a big week for coach Greg McDermott’s that will see them host top ranked Villanova on Saturday.
“To have the Big East Tournament champions coming for the first game and the national champions coming for the second one it is a big week for us”, said McDermott. “If you are going to compete for a league title you have to win at home. It is that simple.”
Seton Hall enters the league race 10-2 and the Pirates beat Creighton 81-73 in Madison Square Garden last season on their way to the Big East Tournament title.
“Seton Hall has won on our floor the last two times they have played here. If you are not ready for this game you don’t have a pulse.”
Tipoff in the CenturyLink Center is 7:00p.m.
