The Bluejays will play their final non-conference home game of the season tonight at 9 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 2 at the CenturyLink Center against the Texas-Pan American Broncs. UTPA, out of the Western Athletic Conference, will be playing on one day of rest after they fell to Saint Louis 75-69 Wednesday night. Meanwhile, Creighton looks to rebound after an overtime loss to St. Mary's last weekend, a game in which poor rebounding and untimely lapses in defense plagued the Jays.
The game will also be the first of the season without redshirt junior guard James Milliken. Milliken was suspended indefinitely for undisclosed reasons earlier this week. A contributor off the bench, Milliken scored a season-high 23 points against South Dakota and was averaging over 17 minutes per game. However, his minutes have been sporadic throughout the season, playing only six minutes in a key win over rival Nebraska and five minutes against St. Mary's.
Texas-Pan Am is led by sophomore forward Janari Joesaar. The Estonian native is averaging over 20 points per game, having scored over 20 points six times this season, including 55 points in the last two games combined. The forward can pose as a matchup headache for opposing teams with his size and ability to hit shots from downtown.
Kevin Kugler and Nick Bahe will call the action on Fox Sports 2.
Game time, TV schedule: 9:00 p.m. ET, Fox Sports 2
