Creighton Gets Ready for Providence

OMAHA (KPTM)- The Creighton Bluejays will travel to Providence for another road game in the Big East on Saturday.

At Thursday's practice the team's focus was getting ready for long-time Big East member Providence.

"Going on the road in the Big East is tough duty. Our guys understand that. They understand the challenge and they were able to watch what Providence did to Georgetown on their home floor so we know what we are up against," said Greg McDermott, Creighton Head Coach.

"We could easily be celebrating because we are 5-0 on the conference, but we know we have a tough opponent coming up and it's nice that it's a new environment and there should be a lot of excitement," said Doug McDermott, Creighton Forward.

Providence beat Georgetown handily in their meeting this year.

Tip off on Saturday is 6:00 pm. The game can be seen on Fox Sports One.
