When the Shockers and the Blue Jays met back in the middle of January, it was Wichita State that probably needed a victory in a bad way. Now, Creighton is the team that is the club that badly needs the signature ‘W’. The Blue Jays did pick up a big win on the road at the Bradley Braves on Wednesday night, and the team now has three wins in four games after losing three straight. The Jays are probably in the NCAA Tournament right now, but this win would be the one that seals the deal. It’s a big game for Missouri Valley title as well, as the winner will capture the regular season conference crown and the No. 1 seed in next week’s MVC Tournament. Does it mean much to either side? In the grand scheme of things, probably not. However, we really like the fact that the Blue Jays came out with authority and smashed Bradley on Wednesday night. Now, all signs are clearly pointing to them finding a way to win the Missouri Valley by taking down the Shockers, who were incredibly disappointing in their home finale against Evansville.
Wichita State vs. Creighton Pick: Creighton Blue Jays -5.5
Wichita State vs. Creighton Prediction: Creighton 69 – Wichita State 62
