With sole possession of first place in the Big East Conference theirs, the 11th-ranked Creighton Bluejays will try to keep the good times rolling as they fly into the Bradley Center tonight to take on the Marquette Golden Eagles.
If there’s one thing we know about the Big East this season, it’s that Creighton has Villanova’s number. The first time around, the Bluejays launched 21 3-pointers against Villanova.
