What to Know
The DePaul Blue Demons are 0-13 against the Creighton Bluejays since January of 2016, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Thursday. The Blue Demons and Creighton will face off in a Big East battle at 10 p.m. ET at Wintrust Arena. DePaul is out to stop an eight-game streak of losses at home.
DePaul lost a heartbreaker to the Butler Bulldogs when they met last December, and they left with a heavy heart again on Tuesday. DePaul fell just short of Butler by a score of 73-71.
