In today’s March Madness Round of 32 we’ve seen Stanford top Kansas and Wichita State and Kentucky duke it out in a thriller. Yet probably most evenly matched game in the Round of 32, Baylor vs Creighton, is still to unfold at 4:40pm PST / 7:40pm EST today in the San Antonio West Regional game. Creighton basketball is the nation’s most efficient in terms of offense, although the Bluejays aren’t exactly a household name. That offense will go up against a Baylor zone defense that doesn’t guard the three-ball consistently — music to Creighton’s crew of shooters. You can watch Baylor vs Creighton basketball online free live using a few different services to see what could be one of the best games of the NCAA Round of 32.
The Creighton Bluejays perimeter threat is led by Doug McDermott, one of the best three-point shooters around. Baylor, seeded sixth in the region, had a relatively easy time in beating Nebraska on Friday 74-60. Number 3-seed Creighton, meanwhile, had to grind out a win against Louisiana-Lafayette before finally pulling away to win 76-66. The catalyst to that victory? Doug McDermott, who kickstarted a 7-point lead on the Ragin’ Cajuns with a 3-pointer with 2:03 left in the game.
At the other end, Creighton has to keep Baylor’s big men off the offensive glass, and slow down Kenny Chery. The Baylor basketball team is also peaking at the right time, having gone 11-2 in their last 13 games of the season. Despite a 9-9 record in conference play, the Baylor Bears won three games in the Big-12 tournament before losing to Iowa State in the finals. And while the Bears beat Nebraska in the Round of 64, Baylor was only 2-13 from the 3-point line, mostly due to a cold game by their 3-point specialist Brady Heslip who was only just 1-7 from the field.
If you watch Baylor vs Creighton basketball online free live, you’ll see a Bluejays starting lineup that includes four seniors and a junior. McDermott ended Baylor’s previous game with 30 points and 12 rebounds. Advancing is important to Creighton in today’s game against Baylor, as it’s the last year for McDermott and the three other senior starters. It has been in the third round where the Bluejays have been eliminated the last two years.
Baylor is a big and athletic team that all but collapsed in January, only to pick itself back up and turn things around with a frantic finish. Last season’s NIT champions started the season ranked No. 25 and rose as high as No. 7 behind a 13-1 start. With McDermott driven to prove his skipping the NBA Draft last year was worth his while, today’s game should be good.
