New, comments

No pressure or anything, just the season on the line.

marq v creighton

THE VITALS: Marquette Golden Eagles (14-11, 5-8) at Creighton Bluejays (19-7, 8-5)

THE DATE: Saturday, February 17, 2018

THE TIME: 9:15pm Central

THE LOCATION: CenturyLink Center, Omaha, Nebraska

THE TELEVISION: Fox Sports Wisconsin, or selected other FS Regional providers, with Steve Physioc and Nick Bahe on the call

THE STREAMING: Fox Sports Go

THE RADIO: 540 ESPN Milwaukee, with Steve “The Homer” True and Jim McIlvaine on the call

THE LIVE STATS: StatBroadcast

THE LINE: Marquette +7.5

THE PROJECTION: KenPom gives Creighton a 74% chance of victory with a predicted score of 87-80.

THE STAKES: Marquette has eight Big East losses on the season already. Earning an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament without help from the Big East tournament with a 10-8 record is a likely possibility. Earning said bid at 9-9 is much less likely.
