If the game draws over 18,000, which it probably will, all the top-20 crowds all-time will then be over 18,000.

I said it before, but 9 spots is a bit ridiculous. By the way, what a finish to the game tonight. Marquette ended on a 19-4 run. They were down 13 with around 4 min left. Quite the opposite of the CU-Nova game where it was tied with 4 min to go and Nova won by 10. I just wish for once that Creighton would get one of these huge wins. I know that we beat Nova twice when they were ranked #4 and #6 a few years ago, but would love to beat a #1 team.

CU needs a win tomorrow. The rhetoric is sliding quick and they need to put a couple wins on the board.

Even without Mo, the Bluejays should gag Georgetown, even on the road..

The Jays lose this one, however, I'm getting the gas can ready...

Absolute terrible half for Creighton....down 12 at halftime to Georgetown. 27-39.

Patton is the only guy that came to play. He has 12 pts and 3 rebs, but is 0-4 at the foul line.

Early returns shows that the huge drop in the rankings was justified. They look lost out there right now.

Stick a fork in this one, it's done.

This is just sad. It is pretty apparent Mo was everything to this team.

Creighton going to be fighting for a tourney bid going forward...

9 spots was clearly too generous. They will not be ranked the rest of the season, nor should they be.

After tonight, they won't be ranked. And I agree, if they don't turn it around quickly, they won't be the rest of the season.

Such a crazy year in men's basketball this year with # 1,2, and 4 losing last night and #6 Florida St down 41-15 at halftime at GA Tech. They lost by 22.

As for Creighton, they look absolutely lost. No words to describe the team. They are barely even going through the motions and don't appear to be having any fun at all. That is a recipe for disaster.

It was Depaul. A team of me, you, and Coyote with Coyote being blindfolded could beat Depaul by at least 10. And that's if we're all drunk.

My drunk seats at the game, with Big E, who claimed that we were taller than half of DePaul, but you have to throw in Tuna to make a team...

Today is the first time I have ever missed a pink-out or a white-out. Glad they got off the slide, hope they can start to pick up some momentum.

It was Depaul. A team of me, you, and Coyote with Coyote being blindfolded could beat Depaul by at least 10. And that's if we're all drunk.

Yeah DePaul has lost 9 of their last 10 but they did only lose by 3 @ Nova and by 1 to Butler.

Great to see the Jays get back on the winning track.

If you look the whole body of work so far it is probably about right.

What they do from here on out will determine if they belong in the top 20 or are outside looking it.... to state the obvious.

This next two games will determine the rest of the season; go 0-2 and it's over, NIT bound. Go 1-1, we're still good. Go 2-0 and I'll jump for joy.

Xavier's 2nd leading scorer Edmond Sumner tore his ACL yesterday and is out for the season. He had 10 pts, 6 rebs and 5 assts in the game 2 weeks ago when Mo tore his ACL. He was averaging 15 pts, 5 assts and 4 rebs/game.

Wow. Jays hold on for a Great Road Win. Couldn't ask for more.
Without Watson both Mintz and Clement held their own.
Patton sat much of the first half with 2 fouls, comes back with a vengeance.
