If Pat Morita was still with us this wouldn't even be a concern.

To add to the pointless speculation, I'd guess TK is out until the Big East tournament. Really hope he doesn't push it too soon, obliques need rest to heal.

I was really hoping to get to see he and Oso play one last time in person in a win over UConn on Senior Day. I won't be able to travel for the Big East and NCAA Tournaments this year so that is my last chance.

I'd rather he be healthy for March though.

Stating the obvious, I think the most likely return spots are UConn, start of BET, or start of March Madness. There's definitely a good chance he'll gut it out for UConn. I just didn't think Shaka's comments yesterday were particularly promising, so I'm assuming he misses at least Creighton.

If Kolek misses out on the next two games (CU and UCONN) it is likely that both games will be losses.  They may have been losses regardless.  All that is left is the last game at Xavier, and I would be nice to win that game to ensure a #2/3 seed in the BET, which avoids UCONN until the championship game.  Non-MD advice: sit TKO until March 8th. If there any issues, then sit him until the BET starts on March 14. At this point, the only games that really matter are played on March 21-22.

Marquette being a 3.5 point underdog tells me Vegas expects Kolek to be out.

I'm surprised MU is +3.5. I would think they would be bigger dogs tomorrow.

Torvik has Creighton at -2.4 with 59% chance of winning.

I would assume that number will change by 1.5-2.0 points if Kolek is not playing and be +4 or +5 MU

I would've expected Marquette to be favored or at the very least a pickem with Kolek at 100%.

Creighton has lost to Butler and Nova at home and a shorthanded Providence that we just handled.

I think we’ll see more point Oso on Saturday.

Yep, Point Oso to the rescue.  If Magic can play center, Oso can be the PG.

KenPom has Creighton by 4.  Vegas line is spot-on

I would have thought MU would be a couple point dog with a healthy TK.

The line is usually close to Pomeroy…….he has it as Creighton by 4……and that would not take Kolek absence into account.

Pretty likely we’ve seen Kolek play his last Marquette game already
Disagree, I'm with JB on this one #onemoreyear. Plus he convinces OSO to comeback and develop a midrange, book it.
Goal is National Championship

They are. Two to four dogs depending on the stat site. You betting Blue Jays?

Dr. B

I have a good feeling that the recent good play will continue tomorrow. They might steal one without TK. That said, likely no wager being made on the game.

A win without Kolek tomorrow would epitomize the culture Shaka has built in the last few years. A loss and it’s just about getting healthy and moving on to the next.
