Creighton Basketball: Close, but still not enough

Creighton continues spiraling down as conference play continues. However, the last few games the Bluejays have played haven’t been quite as bad. Three of the last four games have been lost by three points or less. If you are a Creighton fan I don’t know if victory being snatched away from your hand is better than losing by ten. They have come so close but cannot close a game...

Creighton to hold 'Lumberjack Night' to honor Ethan Wragge

Not only is Wragge known for his ridiculous stroke (his threes are known as #Wraggebombs), but also for his lumberjack-style...
