Re: Creighton Basketball 2017-2018

This Jays team is going NOWHERE.. Taz was the ONLY player who stepped up in the 2nd half and played with any sort of confidence..

Re: Creighton Basketball 2017-2018

It's just another patented McDermott late season meltdown, it happens every single year. Oh well, on to next year with the same thing happening. Pathetic. This style of play wears them out or something by the end of the year, and they just become a MVC looking team again. Just don't get it. They'll ...

And the wacky wild Big East continues its ways. Villanova loses to Providence.

Had the Jays not had that loss against Xavier, they could be playing for tops of the conference here. Oh well.

Those folks were being phased to other buildings and or phased out by the time I left the company. Kinda wonder how many are still left in 6902. Also, A LOT of space in those buildings was not being used.

I hate blaming the refs for anything, but I'm not sure there could be a worse call. First of all, Ronnie was backing away and had his arms straight up in the air...second, Goodin took three steps without dribbling on the drive, that's traveling.
