CREIGHTON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Video: UConn’s Kia Nurse Bounced Back Nicely Against Creighton

UConn Huskies women’s basketball freshman Kia Nurse didn’t exactly play her best game in the loss to the Stanford Cardinal last Monday. She played just 20 minutes and had nine points but fouled out of the game at an important stretch in the second half. Was her fouling out the difference? Probably not. The key though would be in how would she bounce back in the next game. It’s...

Creighton-Mississippi Preview

Creighton has had to take a new approach this season following the departure of star Doug McDermott to the NBA. It's been working pretty well for the Bluejays so far.

Creighton (5-0) has had a different leading scorer in...

E. Illinois-Creighton Preview

Losing an All-American who led the nation in scoring along with three other starters is not what any coach considers ideal, but a win over a ranked opponent during its 4-0 start has helped lift coach Greg McDermott and Creighton back into the spotlight. Following their return to the Top 25, the No. 23 Bluejays open a busy week Tuesday night against Eastern Illinois in the second...

The 2013-14 season’s Naismith winner averaged 26.7 points a game for Creighton, leading the Blue Jays to a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament.  Being such a great scorer, McDermott has to be an outstanding H-O-R-S-E player, right?

Doug McDermott's awesome tweet exchange with ESPN

Creighton standout Doug McDermott – aka Dougie McBuckets – has been one of the major talking points of college basketball this season. On Monday, ESPN’s official college basketball Twitter account sent out a tweet reminding us that it’s highly (and I mean HIGHLY) unlikely that McDermott will pass Pete Maravich as the NCAA’s all-time scoring leader this March. After ESPN’s...

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. Wragge is arguably the nation’s best long-range shooter, and lit up Villanova for 27 points — all of his points coming from three-pointers. Not only is Wragge known for his ridiculous stroke (his threes are known as #Wraggebombs), but also for his lumberjack-style...
