Two teams that have been familiar with the NCAA Tournament will meet in the NIT on Tuesday as the Creighton Blue Jays and BYU Cougars get set for battle.
The winner of this one will head into the semi finals of the NIT, with a date at Madison Square Garden on the line.
BYU star Kyle Collinsworth is doing and saying all the right things right now to get his team pumped up.
The leader of the Cougars make it very clear to everyone on BYU that hanging their heads about not getting into the NCAA tourney or they could drive forward and try to push toward an NIT Championship.
BYU continues their surge here into the quarterfinals, thanks in large part to Collinsworth and his stellar play.
Through the first two NIT games, Collinsworth has averaged 18.5 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds as he continues to keep his college career alive. This year, he’s posted 12 triple-doubles as the Cougars would simply be lost without him.
BYU leads the head to head series 6-3, but these two teams have not met since 2010.
Creighton Blue Jays
The Blue Jays had no problem with Wagner on Saturday as they took it to them in an 87-54 route.
The win not only moved them on in the tourney, but it also pushed them to 20 wins, which marked the 16th time in 18 seasons. Geoffrey Groselle was the go to guy against Wagner as he finished 7 of 7 from the field and has a career shooting percentage over 60% from the field.
However, the Blue Jays will be much thinner on Tuesday night.
Isaiah Zierden, who was averaging nearly 11 points per game, is OUT for the remainder of the season with a shoulder injury. That now puts a lot of pressure on Groselle, who is averaging 10.9 points per game to go along with 6 rebounds per game.
Bluejays G Malik Albert (leg) is likely OUT as well here as he underwent an MRI on Monday and will likely go through further tests.
