Creighton will be sidelined for at least the next two weekends because of COVID-19 issues within the program.
The Bluejays' next two series have been postponed — at Marquette on Friday and Saturday and hosting Xavier Feb. 26 and 27. No makeup dates have been announced yet.
This weekend was set to be Creighton's Big East opener, though the Jays played Marquette earlier this month for two nonconference games. The teams split that series.
Creighton (4-2) and Marquette (6-2, 2-0) are the Big East's top two teams. The Jays are ranked No. 20 nationally and the Golden Eagles are No. 24. Marquette opened its conference schedule last weekend with two sweeps against DePaul.
The Jays have two Big East series left on the schedule, pending a rescheduling of the Marquette and Xavier matches — DePaul (March 5 and 6) and Butler (March 12 and 13). CU plays a nonconference game against Kansas State on March 20 and the Big East tournament is set to begin in Omaha on April 2.
