Creighton’s upset win over No. 8 Villanova highlights a wild Saturday in Big East basketball, where three ranked teams lost at home to unranked opponents. bit.ly/2GNkvM4

The Big East is different this year, and Saturday proved it.

Jays played their best defense of the season according to many, including Jon Nyatawa and Coach Mac.  The Jays “Big 3” have been consistent all year and both Denzel and Damien Jefferson have come on strong.  The team is getting better by the week.

Jays sitting at 17-5 / 6-3 BE (3rd).  AP 21st / Coaches 22nd.  CU is also NET 14th/RPI 14th.  If ever there was a time to get on a roll…it’s Now!  The final stretch run…last 9 Reg Season games, with 5 at home – including the last 2 games.  Cranking out an end-of-season Creighton Run would finish the regular season correctly.
