  • This Sunday matchup will have Big East title implications. Volleyball fans will get to see if 17th-ranked Marquette has what it takes to get over the hump against 13th-ranked Creighton, which has won each of the last 8 Big East crowns (4 regular season, 4 tournament).
  • Marquette returns all 6 starters plus the libero from last season, while Creighton has 4 returning starters and its libero back this year. The race is so close between these two that VolleyMob couldn’t give either team the edge in its Big East preview.
