There are four ranked teams in the Big East at the moment and Butler is at the end of a stretch against the four of them all in a row.
It’s a good thing the Bulldogs started that stretch with a win over #1 Villanova because it lost at Xavier after that and then followed that up with a home loss to Seton Hall. The Bulldogs blew an 11-point lead in the last ten minutes, but Seton Hall is really good. I’m just a little disappointed that more people are going to realize that now.
Kelan Martin led all scorers with 27 points in that one. He’s just about at 20 points per game in his senior season, but his three-point shooting is down. He’s taking more — nearly seven per game — but his percentage is down, from 35 percent last season to just over 30 this. Still, he’s putting up over 25 per game in his four Big East contests and he’s going to be a problem for Creighton.
Creighton Blue Jays
That’s because the Blue Jays don’t have a good option to throw on Martin and the only way you are going to slow him down is to use a capable one-on-one defender. Khyri Thomas is a phenomenal defender, but he doesn’t have the size to body Martin.
Marcus Foster only had nine points in Creighton’s game over the weekend, but the Blue Jays destroyed Georgetown, 90–66. There are not many more accomplished players in college basketball. This is Foster’s fifth year in college because he sat out a season after transferring two years into his Kansas State tenure. But in the three seasons he’s completed, Foster played just short of 3000 minutes; he scored over 1500 points; and he’s having his best season yet this year.
Foster’s scoring has reached its apex: 18.8 points per game. For the first time, he’s shooting over 50 percent from the field and he’s hitting over 43 percent of his threes (he shot 34 percent last season). He’s 22 years old, has a child and is determined to get to the NBA. There are a lot of terrific players in the Big East, but Foster very well may be the best.

Free Butler vs. Creighton NCAAB Prediction: Martin and Foster duel in Nebraska.
This will be a terrific game. Butler won’t fall out of things and is, in fact, a live dog on the road. But rather than the sides, I like the over. The pace will be fast, the threes will fall and this one will fly over.
