Two teams having disappointing seasons collide in Omaha on Wednesday night when Drake visits Creighton in Missouri Valley Conference play. The Bulldogs are 0-3 in the Valley and 5-10 overall while the Blue Jays are 1-2 in the league race and 6-8 overall.
Drake coach Mark Phelps says Creighton is much better than its record as he says they are talented and it will be a challenge for his team coming off five straight losses. He says their program has been the standard in the league for many years.
Creighton is coming off a victory against Evansville and looks to build momentum against the Bulldogs. Creighton coach Dana Altman says they are hitting free throws, but feel like they are making progress overall. He says both teams are using a lot of newcomers.
