Creighton isn't used to this kind of losing. The Bluejays find themselves at 0-4 in conference play and with a tough road ahead, need some momentum for the second half of the season and it starts Wednesday night against the Golden Eagles. Creighton lost a heart-breaker against Seton Hall last weekend and now they take on a Marquette team that has been rejuvenated since the addition of Luke Fischer. Both teams are looking to avoid the bottom four, who play on opening night of the Big East Tournament.
