Sunday, February 9:
St. John’s needs the game to get into the NCAA Tournament discussion. Creighton needs the game to keep pace with Villanova. This is what we predict. What do you think?
Creighton at St. John’s, 7pm Fox Sports 1
Zurg: The Johnnies strategy to take away Doug McDermott’s teammates and let him beat them nearly worked in Omaha. Expect the game plan to be fine-tuned. St. John’s needs a marquee win, and it could come against Creighton at Madison Square Garden. St. John’s 74, Creighton 73
Buzz: St. John’s is surging as they’ve won 5 out of 6. The only loss coming by 3 in Omaha. Lavin will have the team ready to go tonight because they need a win tonight to inch towards the at large conversation. The problem? Creighton got scared by them twice so they will be ready as well. Grant Gibbs looked awesome in his debut and I expect the same tonight. Creighton 83, St. John’s 78
