Well,

Uconn is in fact capable of getting rattled

They are just blindly throwing balls up to the rim now

Creighton is starting to knock down the 3-Ball.
Hopefully they keep it up. Will help MU’s Cause if Blue Jays win.

Much like Saturday, the threes are there to be had.  The Jays are cashing in on open looks.  Marquette did the opposite.  There’s hope for the rematch on 3/6.

They're defending better than we did as well.

So what exactly is Clingan good at on a basketball court besides being immense?

He’s a very good player.  Don’t be silly now.  The guy is a projected lottery pick because he’s skilled.

FS1 just put up a graphic during the Creighton/UConn game that UConn has lost 20 straight road games against ranked opponents

Uconn was getting any shot they wanted for the first 10 minutes.

They have stopped even trying to go to Karaban and are completely rattled due to Creighton going super nova.

Sounds like another team that tried to do the same last Saturday.  Creighton gave up 99 points on this floor to Butler.  That’s not happening again.  The Jays are so well coached.

maybe it’s how they use him.  Does he have a post game?  All he does is set screen after screen and hang around the 3 point line with the occasional roll to the basket.

I think it’s just the opposite.

A win over UConn will bring Creighton into the picture competing with MU for seed position.

They would have to win out for starters.  And probably beat us or UCONN in the BET.

UConn playing like dung, super undisciplined fouling everywhere.

Butler the next BE team to be in trouble after Nova and StJ as I predicted.

Problem is, they all seem to be following suit of “being in trouble”

I’d say that SH, with their 5 Q1s, 10 conference wins and Butler, Nova, DePaul left at home have to be sitting in the best shape despite the worst of the metrics. They have closed the gap on the metrics with the other bubble fodder.


After that Villanova might’ve gotten themselves back into it with 3 Q1s, the best metrics, and 3 “winnable” Q1s left (@Uconn a loss) @Providence, SH and v Creighton last 3 of the season.
I don’t trust their coach to make it happen though.

-I’ll call StJ done without an autobid, they are in shambles.
-X would need to sweep Marquette to get in the convo.
-Butler only has @SH left as a Q1 and their big road wins @MU+Creighton probably won’t be enough.
-Providence has @X&MU, v Nova and UConn so they’ve still got a path with a solid finish.

If I had to handicap right now I’d say that Seton Hall gets the 4th BE bid and Providence forces their way into a play in game.
I think those two squads, although not the most talented “of the rest” and with currently the worst metrics of the rest, are the two toughest squads in that group and have played the best.

Villanova has it there for the taking but from what I’ve seen I don’t think they will take it.

I don't know. At this stage of the season and UCONN having a 3 game lead over MU in the loss column, I'd almost rather concede the BE regular season to UCONN, even if we beat them in Milwaukee. Have them tag Creighton with another loss tonight so that MU has a better chance of locking up the #2 seed for the BET. Wouldn't have to play UCONN until championship game of BET.

Go Huskies. Beat Jays.

I’m fine with either the 2nd or 3rd seed in the BET.  Creighton is making their shots tonite which we did not do on Saturday.

He’s playing with foul trouble.  We need the same from him on March 6th.  Why is he a solid NBA prospect?  He can score and rebound.  His defensive presence altered many MU shots on Saturday.  He’s a guy who can shoot with both hands and pass the ball well.  He is sneaky good from the outside.  He’s also just a sophomore.  I’d love to have him on our team.  There’s a ton of upside here.

Creighton’s making their shots which is keeping UConn from their transition offense.  We did not do that.

They'll make a lot of teams look bad shooting like this. But they don't do it very often.

Creighton is a better shooting team than Marquette.

They are also a much “softer” and less physical team than UConn, they hate fouling, and that plays into Marquettes hands.
It’s partly because Dougy plays no bench.

They are a much better matchup for Marquette than UConn is.
Won’t be an easy game, but Marquette won’t get blown out
