Creighton Blue Jays
The Jays have yet to win in the New Year with losses at Butler followed by losses in Omaha against Marquette and Villanova.
The defense just doesn’t provide much, if any, resistance, especially against a capable offensive team like Villanova. That makes it tricky to defend home court the way Creighton typically does. Phil Booth and Eric Paschall had a couple of field days on Sunday.
Ty-Shon Alexander chucked up fifteen threes and made six of them, which will get it done but even on an afternoon Creighton shot 40 percent from 3-point range on 35 attempts, it still lost by double-digits.
Martin Krampelj delivered his second double-double as a junior. The Slovenian has taken a small step back since suffering a season-ending injury around this time last year but he’s still producing well for the Jays inside.
St. John’s Red Storm
All three of St. John’s losses have come against Big East opponents and the last one was the worst of all: an 8-point loss, at home, to DePaul.
It doesn’t look as bad when you realize Shamorie Ponds didn’t play; either that, or it just highlights how valuable the junior is to his team. Ponds is pouring in over 20 points per game this season but missed the game unexpectedly with what the team assessed to be a back strain.
The Demons blanketed St. John’s other big scorer, Mustapha Heron, and took control. Will Ponds play against Creighton? There’s no news as of now but should be something on game day. It looks like St. John’s slides quite a bit in a crowded Big East without him.
