If you have a problem gambling on sports you should consult a mathematician or statistician to properly weigh your chances of winning, then promptly phone your local psychologist to see if you have an addiction problem, then visit your bank and take out a loan to cover all your bases, then email your local representative to see if gambling is legal in your state, then write your retained lawyer to prepare for a legal battle, then text your wife as you’re headed off to jail, then carve your will and testament into your cell wall before the jailyard gang kills you, then pray to god and repent your sins as you draw your final breath, then chug some PBRs in hell as the devil tattoos your most shameful deeds into your forearm, then moonwalk up the escalator to heaven as the limbo judges reverse their decision to send you to hell, then throw up in Donald Trump’s lap on a cloud above a failing nuclear power plant because that’s your version of heaven.


Previous Meeting

#16 Creighton 51 Georgetown 71 - 1/25/17

Creighton got absolutely obliterated by a fantastic night from Rodney Pryor and LJ Peak. This game came on the heels of the Bluejays losing point guard Maurice Watson Jr., which was supremely evident as the offense never really got clicking. It was like watching a sad man try to cheer up a broken down a 1989 Honda Civic.

Since then Georgetown beat DePaul, Butler, and Marquette while losing to Seton Hall and Villanova. What has turned out to be a bizarre year for the Hoyas, they’re somehow squarely on the bubble, and have an opportunity to polish their resume by beating the Bluejays a second time.

Creighton, since that fateful day in DC, has beaten DePaul twice, Butler once, and lost to Xavier and Seton Hall. Their offense has become a bit more polished, yet still has its inconsistencies in comparison to the pre-injury days, yet are looking to pad their resume and remain in the middle of the conference seeding for the BIG EAST Tournament Presented by Jeep.


Verba de Ludis

In their last affair, what the Jays lacked on defense they made up for by sucking even worse on the offensive end, allowing Rodney Pryor and LJ Peak to score at will while being completely unable to maneuver the ball on the offensive end.

Perhaps in this go around the Jays have fully realized their potential and will make a stronger effort to get things going early and often, attempting to keep pace. Luckily for them, they’ll play the Hoyas in front of a full house at home - an arena that has brought 11 wins for them so far this season - and should, at the least, entertain the folks of Omaha.

For Georgetown, the ability to come off a statement win against Marquette and perform at a high enough level to catch Creighton off guard will put them squarely on the bubble. Every game from here on out acts as some sort of magic number: win out and they’re in. Hiccup at all and they’ll be watching the madness from their couches. If that isn’t incentive enough for LJ Peak and the Hoyas to come out firing on all cylinders, I don’t know what is.
