OMAHA, Neb. -- What Creighton and Georgetown seek to gain from Sunday's Big East rematch are significantly different three weeks before the conference tournament.
With an NCAA bid seemingly secure, the No. 20-ranked Bluejays are looking to bounce back from two setbacks -- Wednesday's 87-81 loss at Seton Hall and the 71-51 drubbing that Georgetown delivered to Creighton on Jan. 25 in Washington, D.C.
Georgetown hasn't played since Feb. 11 and needs another signature win or two to spice up its resume for an NCAA tournament bid. The Hoyas are 14-12 (5-8 Big East) with three road wins -- at Butler, Oregon and Syracuse.
