Alan Huss, a former player for the Jays, was selected to replace Steve Lutz as assistant coach.

http://www.gocreighton.com/news/2017/4/ ... coach.aspx

As an assistant to Craig Neal during the previous three seasons at New Mexico, Huss helped guide the Lobos to 49 victories. UNM went 33-13 at The Pit during that time and the Lobos went 5-1 in six meetings against in-state rival New Mexico State.

Huss came to UNM after spending four seasons at the helm of the prep program at La Lumiere School in La Porte, Ind., where he amassed an impressive 102-19 record for a team that was regularly ranked as one of the top high school programs in the nation. His record also includes a perfect 62-0 home record at Marsch Gymnasium. He coached more than three dozen Division I products at the high school level, including former NBA guard Darington Hobson.

Sad to hear of this....he gave Creighton some international exposure. Watching him play, it was obvious that he has the athleticism but struggled with shot selection in the few min that he got to play.

Not sure how this will turn out, but Creighton just signed a DIV II grad-transfer who is eligible immediately for one year. He did play one year in DIV I at Fordham.

6'10", 240 lbs.

Can't teach someone to reach that size, 6'11 240 is the kind of big body that they need. He was also very good at Free Throws (shockingly), which are the same regardless of Division level.

I agree with all of this. I'd say having Manny around, even for 1 season, is a good thing.. Considering JP jumped ship after only one season on the court...

Creighton really needed a big to play 5-10 minutes to give Hegner and Kramplj a blow.

They do have Jacob Epperson (true Freshman) and Sam Dunkam the 7'0 transfer who is eligible in the second semester.

Suarez is a big dude. In the picture with Greg McDermott, he made McDermott look small and that isn't easy to do since he is 6'8".
