The first half of their first Big East season has left an impression on the Creighton Bluejays.
Not to mention some bumps and bruises.
“It's a tough league,” forward Ethan Wragge said. “The players are strong and physical, but we've figured out what we can do and what we can't do against this league.
“I think we know what to expect out of ourselves.”
In their first season in the Big East the Creighton Bluejays men’s basketball team currently occupies the conference’s top spot with a 16-3 record (6-1 in Big East). Senior Doug McDermott leads the way with averages of 24.8 points (50% FG) and 7.1 rebounds, but classmate Ethan Wragge and his trademark beard bring fans at CenturyLink Center...
Creighton faced off against No. 4 Villanova yesterday and, boy, did the Bluejays come to play right out of the gate. Creighton, led by senior big man Ethan Wragge, opened the game with nine (NINE!) straight three-pointers to jump out to a huge lead.

But as of tonight, it’s not a discussion. As of Monday, January 20th, no one can touch Ethan Wragge, because no one else...
