Women’s Basketball – Both the women and the men’s teams are in the midst of finding themselves. The women’s team is currently 10-8 / 4-3 in conference. The team faces Butler today at home on FS1, and are looking to sweep Butler on the season.
As for the guys… they fell to @St Johns last Wedsnesday evening, to go 10-8 /1-4 in conference. Jays have lost 4 straight after opening with a win @Providence. Up next is @Georgetown on Monday evening. Jays have been in lead at halftime or in the contest in most of the games. Becoming overly reliant on the 3, abandoning the inside game. And are not finishing well also.
Live by the 3, die by the 3: http://www.sloansportsconference.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/Live%20by%20the%20Three,%20Die%20by%20the%20Three%20The%20Price%20of%20Risk%20in%20the%20NBA.pdf
Recruiting – Rumor had it there might be a commit over the semester break. The staff has been on lockdown since the FBI trial and allegations against CU. No leaks of any sort. Phenomenal. As it turns out – classes began last Wednesday – and no commit of any sort. So much for rumors. Have to assume the Jays are still working on Wing Gerald Drumgoole and PF Tristan Enaruna. No new names for 2019, although some of the staff are following a couple of Jucos. Nothing on any 2020 kids either.
News – New alternate uni was announced this week and will debut Monday vs @Georgetown. New “baby blue” alternate uni which harkens back to the 70s and 80s. A welcome addition and about time.
The annual Creighton vs Cancer Pinkout game is next Friday, 25Jan19 versus Butler. The auction is currently underway.
