Marcus Zegarowski added 13 points to go with two steals. The Bluejays shot 28-of-48 from the field, 7-of-15 from 3-point distance and 13-of-13 at the free throw line.

Gillespie guides Wildcats to win

The Wildcats outscored the Hoyas 44-31 in the second half after trailing by a point at halftime.

College Basketball Betting Trends


The Bluejays are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games. Creighton is 6-13 ATS in its last 19 Big East games.


The Wildcats are 6-0 ATS in their last six Big East games. Villanova is 21-7 ATS in its last 28 home games.


The Wildcats have cruised through Big East play, but also haven't played the toughest of schedules. They already have a 90-78 victory at Creighton this season, but the Bluejays are playing better basketball now with wins in three of their last four contests. I think there is a good chance Villanova doesn't play up to its standard against a team it has already beaten by double digits. Expect Creighton to keep it close here.
