The No. 23 Creighton Bluejays (15-8) continue their pursuit of the top spot in the Big East on Wednesday against Seton Hall (15-9). The first matchup between the two this season ended in a lopsided 83-61 win for the Bluejays on Jan. 3, but since then, Seton Hall has won seven of its following eight games. The Pirates had guard Dre Davis available for that game, but he's missed the last two games with an ankle injury after he scored a season-high 15 points against Butler on Jan. 28, and it's unclear if he'll be able to suit up on Wednesday.
Tip-off from the Prudential Center, where Seton Hall is 8-3 this season, is set for 6:30 p.m. ET. The Bluejays are favored by 4 points in the latest Creighton vs. Seton Hall odds, while the over/under is set at 135.5.

What you need to know about Creighton
The Bluejays survived a second half comeback attempt by Villanova to outlast the Wildcats 66-61 on Saturday. Trey Alexander scored a game-high 27 points and made 5-of-9 3-point attempts. Ryan Kalkbrenner scored 16 points and snagged five rebounds, while Arthur Kaluma was also strong under the basket with eight points and eight boards.
Creighton managed to win despite shooting just 37.7% from the floor and 29.2% from beyond the 3-point line as a team. In the five games before that during their current six-game win streak, Creighton knocked down 49.5% of their total attempts, but still shot an underwhelming 31.4% from downtown. That could be tough to remedy against Seton Hall, which has held opponents to just 33% from deep over its last five games.
