Re: Creighton Basketball 2016-2017

A big part of Creighton's lack of tournament success is they're too dependent on scoring, especially jump shots. By the end of the season, their legs are gone which causes poor shooting. This season's emphasis on transition offense made it worse. Patton and Foster didn't even have legs to finish la...

Re: Creighton Basketball 2016-2017

3 four star players, all top 100 or top 50, with a chance at a 5 star who is top 25.

I will take that any day of the week. The recruiting effort by McDermott and Co' has been remarkable.


Jacob Epperson is his name, 6'11, 190lbs so he will need to add some weight, but he can do that in the gym.
