Creighton barely escaped its first round matchup against UC Santa Barbara and will be facing an Ohio squad that is coming off a big upset over Virginia. Ohio has covered the number in 22 of its last 29 overall, while Creighton has failed to cover the number and 12 of its last 14 played in the NCAA tournament. Ohio's Jason Preston and Ben Vander Plas will be too much for the Creighton defense to contain and the Bobcats defense will hold the Bluejays offense in check as they did against Virginia.
