NEW YORK — Creighton gets a chance Saturday night to put an exclamation point on its first season in the Big East.
After overcoming a physical Xavier team 86-78 on Friday night, the No. 14 Bluejays will square off against Providence in the championship game of the conference tournament. A team with a knack for making history can make some more as it tries to become the first at Creighton to win three straight league tournaments.
