I know we should be cheering for UConn, but I’m cheering for Creighton

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

With their convincing win at Butler and this game Creighton has significantly improved their position in the last few days.

With only 4 games left winning out for them is not that tall an order.

They might have a shot at getting two wins over MU so they are definitely in a position where they could pass MU on the seed list.

MU really needs to win these 3 upcoming home games to maintain their position.

Maybe Creighton will have a letdown after this and have a clunker  at St. John’s.

Creighton wasn't even in the top 16 of the reveal.  They're probably a 4 seed after beating UConn.  But they had a a lot of ground to make up on MU.

Not sure if this is good for MU (could argue either way), but definitely good for the Big East to have Creighton climb back near the top 10.  In that sense, good for the league, ultimately good for MU.

So this makes UConn 1-21 on the road against Top 25?

I understand that, but MU’s body of work is not that much better than Creighton’s right now and CU has more opportunities to close that gap. Adding another 1A win by beating MU would be a big step in that direction.

MU will not have another opportunity for a Quad 1 win until they play at Creighton.

UConn only a 2.5-point favorite. If forced to bet, I’d sure give the points.

And this is I hardly ever bet on sports.

UConn got outscored by 33 points from the 3-point line; very difficult for any team - even the best team - to overcome that.

I wanted UConn to win because I want us to stay ahead of Creighton in the standings. But UConn being proven to be mortal ... I can live with that.

Which is all of like 10 days away.

MU was 7 overall in the bracket reveal, which most likely didn’t even include our Q1 road win over Butler. Creighton wasn’t in the top 16. There’s a big gap between the 2.

All I said is that they have moved into the picture to challenge MU for seed position. They are already ahead of MU in NET and KenPom and have picked up two Quad 1 wins in 4 days while MU took a metric damaging pounding.

They had a lot of ground to make up and they made up a significant amount with the results of the last few days. They could make up a lot more by beating MU in Omaha and again in the BET where there is a pretty good chance they could meet in the semifinals.

You're not wrong. Of course, in the scenario you present, we also have a chance to pick up two Q1 wins over Creighton.

Creighton has 4 games left 3 are quad 1.

MU has 6 games left 3 are Quad 1 and 2 are Quad 2.  So yeah, MU won’t have another quad 1 until Creighton and then they have 2 more.
