St. John's vs Creighton  Match Preview

Having already climbed one mountain, top-seeded Creighton will have to scale the next one - the Big East Tournament - in which it will face ninth seed St. John's in Thursday's quarterfinals at Madison Square Garden in New York without Marcus Zegarowski. The sophomore injured his knee in the regular-season finale and is out for all of this tournament and possibly beyond for the Bluejays, who will look to avenge a 20-point loss to the Red Storm on March 1.

It is easy to see the effect Zegarowski's ascension had on the Bluejays, who went from a 20-15 mark and NIT appearance last season to Big East champions and likely top three seed in the NCAA Tournament this season. The 6-2 guard from Hamilton, Mass., didn't have many bad games, but when he did the Bluejays tended to struggle as four of their losses came when he failed to crack double figures and shot poorly from 3-point range, where he made 42.4 percent from for the season - good for third in the Big East between teammates Mitch Ballock (43.5, second) and Ty-Shon Alexander (39.9, sixth). "Any time you take someone that has his fingerprints all over your team both on offense and defense, it has an impact," head coach Greg McDermott told the media of Zegarowski, who earned All-American second-team honors from NBC Sports and was an all-Big East second-team selection. "We haven't played a lot with him or Mitch or Ty-Shon off the floor." LJ Figueroa scored 22 points and the Red Storm took advantage of a gassed Georgetown squad to score the final 23 points and pull out a 75-62 victory in Wednesday's first round at Madison Square Garden.

Creighton (#7) vs St. John's

ABOUT ST. JOHN'S (16-15): Figueroa scored 11 points in each half and made some big plays in the second, but it was Marcellus Earlington who was the real spark after intermission. The sophomore forward scored 17 of his 19 points in the second half - including 10 consecutive - and also grabbed 10 rebounds while defending Georgetown big men including 7-foot center Omer Yurtseven, who returned from a four-game absence to score eight points off the bench. "Coach always preached, let the game come to you and I had that in my mind today," Earlington told the media.

ABOUT CREIGHTON (24-7): Denzel Mahoney won the Big East Sixth Man Award but with Zegarowski out, he may be thrust into the starting lineup. The junior guard played 21 games (one start) since becoming eligible Dec. 17, finishing the regular season as Creighton's No. 3 scorer at 12 points per contest and shooting 89.8 percent from the free-throw line in Big East games. In four contests against Big East co-regular season champions Seton Hall and Villanova, Mahoney had some of his best games, averaging 15.5 points while shooting 50 percent from the field and 8-for-17 from 3-point land.
