The Big East Conference has been the most competitive conference this college basketball season. Every team, possibly excluding DePaul and St. John’s, has a chance of winning the Big East Tournament. Last night, two of those teams, Creighton and Xavier, battled it out.
Xavier has been a very consistent team this season and do all of the little things on the court that you need to do to win a game. Unfortunately, even with the great play from Xavier, there was no stopping Maurice Watson Jr. and the Creighton Blue Jays last night.
Watson was incredible last night for Creighton in their big win over Xavier. Creighton has moved to 7-5 in the Big East which makes them tied for 4th with Georgetown.
Maurice Watson Jr. shot 11/21 from the floor. It was a very efficient night for the Creighton star as he finished with 32 points, 5 assists, and 7 rebounds. Watch below some of the highlights from that game including a couple of the incredible plays made by Watson.
