I’ve tried so hard to knock Creighton out of this tournament from the start.
UC Santa Barbara was my big call of this whole thing, and I was one missed layup away from getting it right.
I admittedly – and stupidly – picked Ohio out of spite in the next round, and it got dropkicked by 14 against the Bluejays.
So take all of this with a grain of salt, but I’m under the firm and unwavering belief that Gonzaga is awesome and Creighton really, really isn’t.
It’s a fine Bluejay team, and it’ll hit enough threes to avoid getting totally annihilated, but I can’t shake the 73-48 Big East Championship loss to Georgetown out of my head.
The team has firepower, but it takes something truly special to keep up with these Bulldogs, and Creighton doesn’t have it.
Put it this way. BYU did absolutely everything right a few weeks ago and only lost to the Bulldogs by ten.
Kansas, Iowa, West Virginia, and BYU twice. Those are the only teams that didn’t lose to Gonzaga by at least two touchdowns. Just assume that Creighton won’t get there, either.
