Marquette (-2.5) over Creighton: Following a six-game winning streak, the Bluejays have gone 1-2 and averaged 58.3 points — nearly 11 below their season average — since losing Big East Freshman of the Year Ryan Nembhard to a season-ending wrist injury. Shaka Smart’s Havoc defense, forcing the second-most turnovers per game (13.7) in the Big East, will take advantage of a matchup with an inexperienced freshman point guard, Trey Alexander, and a team that ranks 305th in the nation in turnovers (14.2). After winning the first meeting in double overtime and the second meeting by one point, Creighton, ranked 15th in the nation in luck, according to KenPom, is unlikely to see such friendly rolls again.
