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 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...
