In the thick of the chase for second place in the BIG EAST standings 23rd ranked Creighton is at home against Providence. The Bluejays are 9-5 and a half game behind second place Butler. The 22nd ranked Bulldogs visit second ranked Villanova tonight.
“It is that time of year where every game is important”, said Creighton coach Greg McDermott. “I think the second seed in the Big East tournament is going to be huge so hopefully we can come out and have another good performance like we had on Sunday.”
Providence is 16-11 on the season and 6-8 in the BIG EAST after consecutive home wins over Butler and Xavier in the last 11 days. The Friars did not play last weekend.
