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 on Thursday. DePaul and Creighton will face off in a Big East battle at 10 p.m. ET at Wintrust Arena. The Blue Demons are out to stop an eight-game streak of losses at home.
It was close but no cigar for DePaul as they fell 73-71 to the Butler Bulldogs on Tuesday. The loss was just more heartbreak for DePaul, who fell 63-59 when the teams previously met last December.
