Heading into Christmas, Creighton finished the non-conference portion of their schedule 11-1 and sit at #12 in the nation. They are off to a great start and have been able to deflect the hype that some other teams have found it hard to ignore.
The Bluejays now head into Missouri Valley Conference play, which is always a grind. Their first game is against Evansville — a team that almost knocked off the Bluejays at the CenturyLink last season at the end of last season.
