Friday night takes us to Omaha for this massive Big East conference matchup between the Butler Bulldogs and the Creighton Blue Jays. This game would be a huge résumé building opportunity regardless of which team comes out on top here on Friday night and this should be one of the best games of the regular season. As every time these two teams get together, you can expect a thrilling outcome. Both teams have put together successful seasons and both teams will be looking for a huge conference victory here in this one as we get closer and closer to the conference tournament and the NCAA tournament as well.
Despite a relatively slow start to the season, Butler has turned things around heading into the second month of conference play, and they will look to keep the momentum rolling throughout this game on Friday night. They have an opportunity to pick up a huge résumé building victory against a top 25 team in the country here on Friday night on the road against Creighton, but it will certainly be no easy task. They will need to play one of their best games of the season if they want to get the job done on the road here in this one as they are walking into a tough environment against a team that arguably has two of the best players in the country.
Butler comes into this game with 14 victories through their first 21 games of the regular season and they will look for their 15th win of the year here on Friday night in Omaha. However, Butler struggled throughout the first 10 games of conference play coming into this game sitting right at the .500 mark with five victories. Not only does this feel like a huge résumé building win for them, but it feels like a must win game if they want to stay afloat in the conference championship race, heading into the final full month of the regular season.

Creighton has put together a pretty successful season for themselves, despite a few stumbles along the way. They’ve had some of the best players in the country on their roster this season, which has led them to their success, and they will look to further add to that success with another quality performance here on Friday night at home against Butler. They come into this game with sixteen victories through their first 22 games of the regular season and they will look for win number seventeen here on Friday night at home in Omaha against a formidable conference opponent.
They have been consistent throughout the year as their solid offensive play has led them to victory after victory and they will look to further add to their win with another quality game here in this one.

Their NCAA tournament résumé is all but officially complete but they will look to further add to that as they compete for a conference championship and a conference tournament championship later on down the line.
