What to Know
The Creighton Bluejays and the #11 Baylor Bears are set to clash at 7:10 p.m. ET March 19 at Ball Arena in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Creighton will be seeking to avenge the 65-59 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Nov. 21 of 2017.
The Bluejays beat the NC State Wolfpack 72-63 this past Friday. Center Ryan Kalkbrenner took over for Creighton, finishing with 31 points (a whopping 43% of their total) in addition to seven rebounds and three blocks.
Meanwhile, Baylor earned some postseason bragging rights after a successful outing this past Friday. They enjoyed a cozy 74-56 win over the Santa Barbara Gauchos. Baylor's guard Adam Flagler did his thing and had 18 points and five assists.
Creighton is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Brigham Young Cougars Dec. 10 easily too and instead slipped up with an 83-80. In other words, don't count the Bears out just yet.
