How to watch Xavier vs. Creighton basketball game

Who’s Playing

Creighton @ Xavier

Current Records: Creighton 10-4; Xavier 12-3

What to Know

The Creighton Bluejays are on the road again on Saturday and play against the #17 Xavier Musketeers at noon ET Jan. 15 at Cintas Center. The teams split their matchups last year, with the Bluejays winning the first 66-61 at home and Xavier taking the second 77-69.

It’s hard to picture a worse loss than the 75-41 bruising that Creighton suffered against the Villanova Wildcats last Wednesday. Guard Alex O’Connell (13 points) was the top scorer for Creighton.

Meanwhile, Xavier entered their game against Villanova on Wednesday without any home losses — but there’s a first time for everything. The Musketeers fell just short of the Wildcats by a score of 64-60. The contest was as close as the oddsmakers predicted, but Xavier had been the slight favorite coming in. The top scorers for Xavier were guard Paul Scruggs (15 points) and guard Nate Johnson (15 points).

The losses put the Bluejays at 10-4 and Xavier at 12-3. Neither Creighton (3-0 after losses) nor Xavier ( 2-0) has made a habit of hanging their heads after losses this season, so another slip-up will be unusual territory for either team.
