I was watching the second half of that Nova game. A lot of their 3's were wide open, they just missed them while they hit all of them against us. SJU's defense wasn't much better imo.

So why does everyone shoot so well against us from deep? We’re not known for having a soft perimeter defense like, say, Wichita or North Carolina.

Creighton is in the top 17% of all D1 teams for 3 pt defense at #60 out of 351 teams
Their % on 3 pt. defense is at 32.4%
This years defense overall is light years better than in past years.

UCLA up 10 on Zona at the half. Would be huge if they win this game.

UCLA dominated that game. Arizona has some freaks athletically, but are poorly coached it seems.

Butler looking reeeeeeeallll good up 18-8 on Nova and the Wildcats are cold from 3. Martin with 11 already before the second media timeout. Makes you appreciate Khyri even more and wonder what would happen if Nova wasn't torching the nets against us :roll:

The only good thing about today is that St. John's and Baylor both had big wins and will help our RPI.

Butler, Marquette, Providence all losing is good - if we play X and lose but don’t give up any position in the standings, that’s good. Now if GT can pull it off against SH, it’ll be truly amazing.
