Creighton gets another chance for a resume building victory when the Bluejays visit 16th ranked Gonzaga Friday night. The Jays are 5-1 and this will be their fourth rated opponent in the last five games.
“While there is an opportunity it is certainly a heck of a challenge”, said Creighton coach Greg McDermott. “This is a great basketball away from home and now you factor how good they are on their home floor and it is a tall order. It will be a great experience for our guys and we will give it our best shot and see what happens.”
Gonzaga is 6-1 this season, with the lone loss coming in double-overtime to Florida. The Bulldogs went 37-2 last year and reached the NCAA title game in their 19th straight appearance in the Big Dance.
