Why Creighton Will Win
Creighton hasn’t been dominant, but it’s been able to find ways to win with a 4-1 run in the last five games. The one loss was a total clunker to Georgetown at home 86-79 just last week.
What went wrong? Georgetown hit just about everything from the field and was absurdly hot from the outside. This is a good-shooting team from the outside, but the 10-of-21 day against the Bluejays was the second-best day of the year from the outside.
The Hoyas don’t do a whole lot to force mistakes and they’re normally not that great from the field, but ….
Why Georgetown Will Win
Creighton doesn’t force a whole lot of mistakes either. The defense is better than it was in the first meeting, but this isn’t a big rebounding team and again, it’s not rolling at will with struggle after struggle.
There normally isn’t a lot happening on the offensive boards – although the Bluejays just came off a big game with a whole lot of second-chance points on the road against Marquette – and now the production has to come on the road.

What’s Going To Happen
Creighton is a good road team with just two losses away from Omaha this season.
The shooting was fine in the first meeting, but there were too many misses on the free-throw line and Georgetown was hot. Don’t expect either thing to happen again, but it’ll be another close fight.
