The Creighton Bluejays and Southern Illinois Salukis face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at the Sports and Fitness Center. 

Creighton had won four straight games to start the season but are coming off a bad loss against Colorado State on Sunday. The defense was awful giving up 95 points, and even though the offense scored 81 points it wasn't enough with no defensive help. The best win this season for Creighton was against Nebraska on the road, a game they won 77-69. The biggest issue at times has been with the defensive inconsistency at times. On the season the Bluejays are averaging 75,4 points while their defense is giving up 68.4 points per game. Alex O’Connell has been the best player for Creighton averaging 14.8 points while shooting 49 percent from the field. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Southern Illinois Salukis who currently sit with a 2-2 record overall but they are coming off a loss on Sunday. Against Northeastern the offense could only manage 47 points and that wasn’t enough as they were defeated by 12 points. Overall this season Southern Illinois is averaging 63.3 points per me while their defense is giving up 61.5 points per game. The best player for Southern Illinois has been Lance Jones who is averaging 19 points while shooting 54.1 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from behind the three point line. Marcus Domask has also been good, averaging 15 points while shooting 45.5 percent from the field. Three players are averaging at least 14 points but outside of those three, there isn’t a whole lot of production.

I expect Southern Illinois is going to struggle to score in this game, but they will also keep the pace slow, and that is going to be the big key in this one. The pace is going to be slow enough, that the under will cash.
