Wednesday night, Creighton picked up a huge road win at first-place, tenth-ranked Seton Hall. It sets up some interesting scenarios heading into the stretch run; the most intriguing, certainly, is the possibility of a one-game, winner-take-all game for the Big East regular season title on the season’s final day between the Pirates and Bluejays. For that to happen, Seton Hall has to lose one of their five games before coming to Omaha (and with Villanova, Butler and Marquette left to play, it could happen). For what it’s worth, KenPom’s projections have them losing on the road at Marquette.
If it’s going to matter, though, Creighton has to take care of business by winning out.
