VIDEO: Creighton a surprise contender in the Big East

ESPN's Andy Katz calls Creighton one of the surprise teams in the Big East, and the winner of Saturday's battle between the Blue Jays and Seton Hall will vault that team into contender status.

Katz referenced a discussion with CU coach Greg McDermott in his "3-point shot" video. The Jays head man tpld Katz "this could be one of those wins that if they can get this one would give them tremendous momentum moving forward."

Both CU and Seton Hall enter the game 2-1 in conference play. Katz said the winner should join Villanova, Xavier and Providence as the teams to beat for a regular season title.

Whichever one comes out of this 3-1 has to be considered a contender," Katz said.

Staff-writer Steve Pivovar discussed where the Jays fall in the Big East in Friday's BlueJay Talk Live chat.
