On this cold and snowy (for me at least, I don’t know about you) last day of January, we get to close out a month with what should be quite the matchup between two Top 25 Big East teams as Creighton goes on the road to take on rival Butler. The two teams squared off earlier this year with Creighton coming away victorious as they won 75-64 on their home court.
The #22 Creighton Bluejays came out of the gates scorching hot, winning their first 13 games of the season, and have done very well putting up a 19-3 record, but have stumbled a little bit lately, losing two in a row before winning their last game against DePaul. Creighton is in prime position to make the NCAA Tournament, and most likely get a pretty high seed with how they’ve been playing this year. A win tonight on the road against a Top 20 team would definitely help their cause. It won’t come easy. Butler has been playing some great basketball as of late and are currently ahead of Creighton in the Big East standings.
Maybe I’m just shooting for the moon here, but I really think that Butler is going to be a sleeper team when the tourney rolls around in March. They’ve beaten five ranked teams this year, including reigning national champ Villanova and now top-five Arizona, who was #9 when they beat them earlier this year. Butler isn’t great offensively, as they score less than 80 points a game (76.8 to be exact), but their strength lies within their defense as they only allow 67.2 points a game. A win tonight would help avenge their loss earlier this year to Creighton, and they may be the more desperate team tonight as they try to avoid a second straight loss after losing to Georgetown last week.
Now that you know a little bit about the matchup, let’s break down all of the ways you can watch the game.
