Re: Creighton Basketball 2017-2018

Honestly, it wasn't like Baylor was even holding back the Jays, the Jays just missed a whole lot of gimmie shots. These games sometimes happen, I am just glad it happened against a ranked team. Have to bounce back the rest of the Non Con and not let any weak games slip through. Plus, keeping it clos...

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. If they win the tourney they will definitely be ranked. If they go 1 and 1, they might not be too far aw...
