Eighth ranked Creighton is on the road in Big East play Monday afternoon to take on 15th ranked Xavier. The Jays are 4-1 in the league race and 17-1 overall after a 101-69 win over Truman State and coach Greg McDermott’s team will be tested on the glass by the Musketeers.
“We are practicing all the time the technique and it is an area along with our defense that needs to improve”, said Creighton coach Greg McDermott. “There are parts of our game that are really good and some that need cleaning up. We want to build on what is good and we want to continue to work on some of our weaknesses.”
Xavier is 3-2 in the Big East after a loss to Butler and will provide a challenge for the Bluejays improving defense.
“The first half of the Butler game was one of our best defensive performances of the season and hopefully we can build on that.”
Tipoff in the Citnas Center is 1:00p.m. The game will be televised by Fox Sports One.
