In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Butler at Creighton.
The Butler Bulldogs are looking for consistency as they have lost 5 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 74.2 points per game on 46.2% shooting and allowing 67.9 points on 44% shooting from the floor. Kamal Baldwin is the team’s leading scorer with 17.4 points per game and 5.6 rebounds while Paul Jorgensen is the other double-digit scorer with 11.8 points and 1.8 assists.
The Creighton Bluejays have also split their last 8 games. The team has an explosive offense, averaging 82.4 points per game on nearly 50% shooting. The defense is their weakness because they are allowing 79.1 points per game on 47.5% shooting from the floor. Ty-Shon Alexander is averaging 17.5 points and 2.9 assists while Martin Krampelj is averaging 11.1 points and 6.3 rebounds. Creighton are a great 3-point shooting team as they are converting 42% of their shots from beyond the arc.
Creighton is awful on defense away from home. The got beaten by Butler a few weeks ago on the road by 15 points. They are, however, playing better both on offense and defense at home while Butler is struggling on the road. Both teams are relying on home wins to progress and I think we will once again witness another home win.
