Creighton Basketball: Are the Bluejays catching fire?

Creighton played a great game Wednesday night against DePaul in the first round of the Big East tournament at Madison Square Garden. Besides a few small spurts by the Blue Demons, Creighton led most of the way asserting their dominance through stellar guard play.

Creighton Basketball: Bluejays get first Big East win

The Creighton basketball team has been struggling as of late. With an 0-8 start in the Big East, the Bluejays are no where near the achievements of last year.

Still, no wins in eight games is pretty pathetic. However, Creighton...

The Big East is no easy conference. It is currently ranked as the hardest conference in terms of RPI. However this isn’t the excuse Creighton can use to blame their poor play this season.
