Creighton, 22-11, went to the Big East Tournament Championship Game where they lost to Villanova. The Bluejays remain one of the hottest teams in the nation regardless of that loss. The Jays have gone 9-3 over their last 12 games. In the Big East Tournament, Arthur Kaluma shined, as did Ryan Kalkbrenner. Expect Creighton to lean on them in this one.

San Diego State meanwhile went 23-8 this season under head coach Brian Dutcher. The Aztecs beat a great Colorado State team twice including in the Mountain West Conference Tournament semifinals. They lost to Boise State in the finals, 53-52, but still had a very successful season. Senior Matt Bradley has been the standout for the Aztecs this season and will be one to watch.
