Creighton at Seton Hall Game Preview

Why Creighton Will Win

Who’s playing better right now than the Bluejays?

They’ve won six straight with … defense? That’s not how the program rolled – it lived on offensive firepower – but this year the D has been terrific, it’s dominating on the defensive glass, and no one in America is committing fewer fouls.

Combine that with an offense that’s not having turnover problems and is timely from three, and it’s hot at just the right time. However …

Why Seton Hall Will Win

Seton Hall has found its own groove winning three in a row and seven of its last eight since getting rocked by Creighton a month ago.

It might not be hitting a ton from three, but it’s okay on the move, the offense has been solid from midrange, and the defense remains the best in the Big East allowing just 64 points per game.

Yeah, the Creighton D has been terrific. Seton Hall should be able to crank it up a notch or two at home – it’ll be more than happy to get into a grinding game.

Here’s the problem …

What’s Going To Happen

Seton Hall has to win on the free throw line.

It got to the line a whopping 45 times in the win over DePaul a few days ago, and that has to make up for the lack of overall scoring punch.

But again, Creighton doesn’t foul.

Seton Hall is 13-0 when allowing teams to shoot under 43% and 2-9 when allowing teams to show that or better.

Creighton averages 47% from the field.
