I'll readily admit my judgement of capacity may be off, but that was not a packed house unless 15-20% of the crowd is out of it's seat at any given time.  13k-14k tops.  I'm looking at pics I took during national anthem and 4-5 minutes into the 1st and you can't swing a dead cat without finding blocks of 8-10 empty seats.  

Were there 17K+ in the building over the course of the night?  Sure.

Also, please turn this into a big deal about how I hate Creighton and you're way more awesome than I am.

Fair enough.  There may have been 17K at the Budwesier platform or whatever that thing is called.

If there were ever 14K in the seats at one time watching basketball then I'm a monkey's uncle.

At the risk of getting yelled at, I didn't think it looked very full, either. I would have guess 13-15K.

But why does it matter, anyway

It doesn't.  There just hadn't been a good |expletive| over absolutely nothing around here in awhile.

According to a CU official, CU counts attendance as Tickets Sold, plus free tickets that are actually redeemed.

I think what Creighton does is pretty consistent with other sports programs.  I do agree the actual attendance can very significantly with the amount of tickets sold plus the free ones that were redeemed.

S33 et al were right, this team does suck now.

The worst part is them proving they could beat just about anyone, or win as many games as anyone, but then completely upset down their leg. I think McDermott is a darn good coach, but what in the heck is up with his second half season meltdowns?

It almost seems as though they are reluctant to make any changes to the lineup or defensive scheme.  I know that they are all tough decisions but yesterday they didn't start playing zone until the second half.  Once they did, they played much better on d.  

Also it would be a very tough call to take Austin Chatman out, but lately he is killing Creighton. Yesterday he played 27 minutes (0-7 from the field, 0-3 from 3, 2 pts, 2 assts, 1 reb). He just dribbles the ball up the court and picks up his dribble at the 3 point line.  He is afraid to drive and now he won't even take an open shot when he has one.  This is simply not acceptable for a starting point guard.  The problem is, there is no one else on the team that can consistently play the point guard spot either.

Creighton definitely needs to start recruiting some athletic players because it is really apparent that they are getting killed in that department.  They used to have a full-court press, but even that can't be used often with the lineup we have.

All in all, still a great season 22-7, but they really need to win the final 2 valley games and have a good showing in the MVC tournament.

These next two games are critical. I don't see em getting an at-large bid if they lose one of the next two. Even if they have a decent showing down in St. Louis

I'll be heading to St. Louis next week for the MVC tournament so will have some pics, post-game press conference stuff for that. I hope I won't be coming home before Sunday!

I hope you have a great time and can't wait to see some pics.  I remember last year, someone posted one from the hotel with all the Jays fans and all the blue.  It was a great site to see.

Never mind, I got it. Yeah, if true, could be a distraction. But this was a meltdown of sorts.

It's probably not true.  So, spread it like wild fire.

Jays playing great in the last 5 min. A 2 pt lead is now 16.  McDermott already had a double-double with 23pts and 10rebs with 13 min to go in the game.

Jays win 80-62, now 23-7 on the year.  McDermott finished with 32pts and 11rebs.  Will Artino had a great game 10pts and 7rebs.  Sets up a huge game on Saturday @ the Link.  Currently Evansville is beating Wichita by 3 with 19 secs left.

Wichita lost to Evansville by 3.  The CenturyLink Center is the place to be this weekend.  The game has been sold out for over a month and the winner wins the Valley.

Hopefully Creighton can play with some authority, and finally use the size they have with Artino and Gregory. It's a winnable game, and it's a must win.

On a non game note it was sad in some ways to watch Creighton on 3.2 over the air last night and find that the broadcast quality was better than a KMTV home broadcast on the main Ch 3 network, over the air or otherwise.  With the limited band width that a sub ch gets the picture quaility was still very good and I am guessing it was originating as HD.  Same cannot be said for the CH 3 originated home games.  The two Bradly home guys calling the game didn't do too bad either and were not calling it completely as homers I thought.

Found this picture on bluejayunderground.com.  This the standing room only line as of about 10 min after 10 this morning.  Inside and outside the arena waiting to get tickets.  This should be the loudest the C-Link has ever been.  This is also only the third time in the last 30 years of the Valley that two teams are squaring off on the last game of the season with the conference championship on the line.

Great win by the Jays today!  I watched much of the 2nd half on my Ipad while at the Home opener for Husker Baseball.  DM is finsihing strong to say the least.  What a game with 41 points, there have been games where I have watched my Huskers struggle to get that as a team the last couple of years!  Way to finsih strong.

What are the thoughts on the chance that Doug M comes back for his senior year from those of you who follow CU closer than I do?

I really hope he comes back. Against WSU, he took 15 shots but scored 41. How sick is that?

What a run to end the game after having it close to a 2 point game with not a lot of time left overal.  Nice win.
