The 17th ranked Creighton volleyball team returns home on Friday night to host Butler in BIG EAST action. The Bluejays are 5-1 in the league race after having their 28-match conference win streak snapped a week ago with a loss at BIG EAST leader Marquette. Butler is 4-3 and tied in fourth place with Villanova.
“They are a 70 RPI team and their stud player is coming back from injury so they are going to get better all year long”, said Creighton coach Kirsten Bernthal Booth. “I think on the outside people think we are going to roll through the BIG EAST but the BIG EAST is good.”
Creighton is 7-1 all-time against Butler, with a 4-0 record in Omaha. Butler ruined Creighton’s BIG EAST opener on Oct. 4, 2013 in Indianapolis, handing the Bluejays a four-set loss, but Creighton has won all seven meetings since then.
