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.” Nine...

Creighton to hold 'Lumberjack Night' to honor Ethan Wragge

Last night, many college basketball fans were introduced to Ethan Wragge, the 6-foot-7 senior forward from Creighton.

Ethan Wragge, college basketball’s best shooter, shot his first three … in 10th grade?

Ethan Wragge is the best shooter in college basketball.

Jays' Wragge proves team is more than solo act

ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- The left wrist was pale, swollen and puffy, although "puffy" might be selling it a bit short. It looked like somebody had tried to jam one of those little chocolate doughnuts down Ethan Wragge's forearm.
