Creighton Blue Jays
Creighton’s only loss this season came in one of the earlier (and quicker) Thanksgiving tournaments to Baylor in the finals of a four-team tourney. The Blue Jays beat UCLA to get there in a fast, high-scoring game.
That’s how the Blue Jays like to play. They have a nice mix of athletes and really skilled players.
Marcus Foster scored 18 per game last year in his first season playing for Creighton after transferring over from Kansas State. He’s scoring 18 again this season. He’s your classic scoring guard who can shoot and get to the rim. He’s dangerous in transition, too. Better get a hand in his face if you’re the Zags.
Sophomore forward Martin Krampelj can do some things around the rim and even beyond. He’s 6’9″ from Slovenia and he’s got all the moves when this team slows down and gets into the halfcourt. This is actually his third year at Creighton but just his second season that counts toward his eligibility. He’s playing way more minutes (24.5 per game) this season than in either of the previous two (5.9 last season).
The Zags lost that wild game to Florida that went to overtime in the semifinals of the PK80 out in Portland. The Bulldogs had plenty of chances down the stretch but Florida took it from them. This team is on a similar type level with the one that went to the finals in last season’s NCAA Tournament.
Josh Perkins is the leader but he’s got some bad men surrounding him. I am especially impressed with their two bigs, Johnathan Williams and Killian Tillie. Williams is a senior who is a super athlete. His jump shot isn’t pretty but it’s effective. His real bread and butter is putting it on the floor from 15-20 feet out, where he can take on dribble and swoop to the hoop to finish with either hand (he’s a lefty). He’s a real treat to watch.
Tillie is a sophomore from France. A former volleyball player, he can do it all. He runs and jumps exceptionally well for someone his size and can really shoot it. I like him as an NBA guy.
The backup big Rui Hachimura is 6’8″ and from Japan. He just dropped 18 and 20 in Gonzaga’s last two games — wins over Texas and Gardner Webb.

Free UNC vs. Davidson NCAAB Prediction: Gonzaga dispatches Creighton at home.
You don’t just come up to Spokane and beat Gonzaga in its own gym. Nope, these Zags are legit. Some garbage time threes from Creighton make the final score suggest it was closer than it really was.
