2015 College Basketball:Villanova vs. CreightonMarch 03, 2014 by Marc Jerbs

On Tuesday, Big East champion Villanova will face Creighton at the CenturyLink Center Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska. Tip-off is set at 9:15pm ET.

With the Big East title secured, third-ranked Villanova will now focus on earning a potential top seed in the College Basketball tournament. The Wildcats will try to earn an 11th straight win against Creighton.

A come from behind win against Xavier last Saturday coupled by a loss of Gonzaga opened the door for Villanova for a chance to earn one of the top four seeds on Selection Sunday.

Creighton is in danger of its first losing season since 1995 after a heartbreaking loss against Seton Hall last Saturday. The Bluejays will try to bounce back against the Big East champion Villanova.

It would be a huge task for Creighton to score an upset win. The Bluejays have lost five straight against ranked opponents. Their last win against a ranked opponent was against 18th ranked Oklahoma last November 19.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Villanova as a 10-point favorite to beat Creighton on Tuesday night.
