In new BE conference play, X is 2-2 on the road at Creghton.
And they are 3-2 at home against Creighton
In the 2 previous years that X has won at home, they lost the road game at Creighton.
Let's hope that doesn't continue to hold true this year.

I will be at a watch party in Indy for the game. My record in those watch parties is not good either, so I am hoping for a change.

Creighton is one of the worst offensive rebounding teams in the country.
Unless, CU shoot lights out from 3, X should control the defensive boards and hopefully the game.

Hope JP can get untracked today.
He has 4 straight less than stellar games.
1 for 10 from 3 in that stretch with 13 TO's and 7 assists.
He is making FT's though - 16-19

Agreed. My biggest concern is Thomas, assuming that Goodin/Scruggs guard Watson. He'll have an advantage with either JP or Tre. However, I think X's post advantage and depth will win out in the end.

Tough shot by Q and makes it.
X up 13-10 and Tre/JP have yet to score.

CU is doubling on the post.
SOM needs to pass quicker
