How Creighton Wins

Creighton wins the game is they score a lot of points. They are averaging 81.2 points per game which ranks 15th in the country. The Bluejays are also one of the best passing teams as they rank 2nd in the nation in assists with 18.4 per game. Creighton will need to rebound the ball better if they want a better chance at winning the game. They are averaging 36.5 rebounds per game and that ranked 96th in the nation.

 

How St. John’s Wins

St. John’s will win the game is they play good defense and contain the high scoring Creighton offense. The Red Storm rank 87th in opponents points as they give up an average of 67.2 per game. They are one of the best defensive teams and they rank in the top ten in blocks per game. As a team the Red Storm average 8.3 blocks per game and that ranks 1st in the entire country. If they can outrebound the Bluejays the Red Storm have a better chance at winning the game. They average 36.4 rebounds per game and that ranks 99th in the nation.

 

My Prediction

The Bluejays want to get out and put up a lot of points on St. Johns while the Red Storm want to make this a halfcourt defensive game. Whichever team plays the way they want will have the best shot in winning the game.

I think that Creighton scores a lot of points on St. Johns and the Red Storm don’t have enough offensive firepower to stay in the game. St. Johns defense will keep them close but Creighton is just to good and wins the game.

Final Score

Creighton: 76
St. Johns: 68
