Creighton hosts DePaul Wednesday evening

The Big East’s second place team welcomes its last place team.

NCAA Basketball: Villanova at Creighton Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

The #13 Creighton Bluejays (16-5, 12-4) will look to avoid disaster Wednesday evening as they welcome the DePaul Blue Demons (4-10, 2-10).

Creighton comes into the game having won 13 straight against the Blue Demons, the most recent victory coming on January 30, when Creighton won by a 69-62 margin.

The Bluejays come into Wednesday’s game having won three straight games and six of their previous seven, as Greg McDermott’s team looks poised to make a deep NCAA Tournament run.

DePaul has struggled this season, but picked up a big win over St. John’s over the weekend, with Charlie Moore’s 24-point performance netting him Big East Player of the Week honors. Moore didn’t play in DePaul’s last meeting with Creighton, so perhaps things will be different on Wednesday evening for the Blue Demons.
