Creighton men's basketball received its Big East schedule Thursday with a big game to open that portion of that season.

The Bluejays will open conference play Dec. 17 at home against Villanova, the defending regular-season champion. Creighton will meet Villanova again a few weeks later on Jan. 5.

The rest of the schedule is the standard double round-robin format with Creighton facing every team home and away. Creighton's regular season concludes March 5 with a home game against Seton Hall.
