Re: Warren Distribution, 13th and Leavenworth

I also wish the cinder block building on the next block north would be torn down too. It looks terrible with all the windows boarded up and awnings falling apart. Looks like Cubby's owns that. Wow.

Re: Creighton Basketball 2017-2018

One other quick note, hopefully the attendance on Saturday is better than the last home game vs Alcorn St. The attendance for that Sunday evening game (14,730) was the lowest since 11/13/11 vs Chicago St. (13,908)

Re: Creighton Basketball 2017-2018

I agree, this team is easy to like. I really feel like their defensive intensity was great in the first half last night. They forced a few shot clock violations and were forcing Baylor to turn the ball over. The Jays were getting good looks in the 2nd half but just couldn't connect. Saturday's game ...

Creighton comes in at 35th in AP poll and 28th in the Coaches poll. If they can win their tournament tonight and tomorrow, or at least have a very strong showing, they might be ranked next week.

One more stat:

Re: Creighton Basketball 2017-2018

Jays were up by as much as 15 in the first half. Got behind a few times in the 2nd, but 2 big 3's by Foster and some great play from Khyri and Martin. Jays win their first game vs a top 25 team this year. Next up is #23 UCLA in KC on Monday.

Big night for Khyri with 24 pts, 11 rebs, and 5 assts.

Re: Creighton Basketball 2017-2018

It was a good win after that terrible first half by the refs last night.

Now the real season starts in a hurry. The Jays now play 4 Top 25 teams in their next 5 games, with none of them coming at home. Lets hope they at least earn a split or better.

Creighton lost their closed scrimmage to Minnesota 79-91. Marcus Foster scored 19 and Martin Krampelj had 16.

Minnesota is preseason #15 in the Coaches poll, so this wasn't the worst of outcomes for the game.
