Creighton gets coach back in time to face No. 21 Xavier

Creighton head coach Greg McDermott will return to the bench following a week-long absence resulting from COVID-19 protocol as his Bluejays look to split the season series against No. 21 Xavier on Saturday in Omaha, Neb.

In their first meeting, Xavier (14-5, 4-4 Big East) fought back from a five-point halftime deficit to defeat Creighton 80-73 in Cincinnati on Jan 15. All eight players who entered the game for the Musketeers found the scoring column, with six players scoring in double figures.

The Musketeers were paced by Zach Freemantle's first double-double of the season (13 points, 11 rebounds). Fremantle's nine rebounds in the second half gave the Musketeers a 25-16 rebounding edge in the half and allowed them to score 24 of their 51 second-half points in the paint.
