Creighton’s Slide to the Bubble

At first glance, Creighton looks pretty safely in the field. They have a winning Big East record, 8 wins against the first two quadrants, and their worst RPI loss is against Baylor on a neutral court. But look at this team sheet:


It’s not as nice as you’d think, right? St John’s and Seton Hall are the only Quadrant 1 wins, they are just 4-6 in true road games, and there isn’t a single game that really grabs your attention. It would be great to see Marcus Foster get one last chance to dance, but they may need beat either Villanova or Marquette to do it.
