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.

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.
