MBB:  The 2015-16 Media Guide is now available. 
Here’s our 2015-16 Creighton @BluejayMBB media guide cover. You can read the entire guide at
Recruiting:  Jays get Mintz…breathe easier. 1st 2016 commit.  Lone open scholie is filled.  Several articles on BJB, BJU, and at Hoopseen.  Sneakily athletic, quiet scorer.  Davion has some Nate Funk in his game – plays downhill, a shooter with an outside-in style, and never met a shot he didn’t like.  A great addition to the team.

Note:  Visits are scheduled for a couple of 2016 recruits and of course several 2017 kids.
