Creighton’s Offense Might Be Best In The Country

Not many people were talking about the Creighton Bluejays entering this season but Greg McDermott and company have put the nation on notice. Creighton is a perfect 4-0 on the year – with two wins against ranked teams – while averaging 98.3 points per game and shooting almost 54 percent from the field. The Bluejays will look for their third consecutive win over a ranked opponent when they meet Baylor in the Hall of Fame Classic final on Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in each of Creighton’s 4 games this season.
  • Baylor is 4-0 ATS in its last 4 games against the Big East.
  • Creighton is 7-1 ATS in its last 8 games against the Big 12.

Senior guard Marcus Foster leads Creighton in points and minutes played, quickly establishing himself as a potential national player of the year. However, the Bluejays are starting to see some more balanced scoring from younger players, specifically freshman Mitchell Ballock, who scored 22 points against UCLA on Monday.

Baylor came this close to blowing a big lead against Wisconsin on Monday but managed to hold on to get to the final. Unsurprisingly, it was senior guard Manu Lecomte who was the difference maker for the Bears, as the Belgian scored a game-high 24 points thanks to draining 13 of his 15 free-throw attempts. Jo Lual-Acuil Jr. provides a solid secondary scorer down low but Baylor is much more focused on defense.
