Highlight Reel: CU Wins Drama-Filled Game at Illinois State, Blows Out Southern Illinois
On Friday the 13th, Creighton and Illinois State played a game befitting of that date. It featured double technical fouls, debris tossed from a sold-out crowd to the arena court, the Bluejays blowing most of an 18-point lead, a near triple-double for a Jay, and another standout performance from Doug McDermott. The highlight reel is below if you missed any of the action!
Two nights later, Creighton hosted Southern Illinois, in a game that featured none of the dramatics of Friday night. The Jays jumped out to an early 19-9 lead and never looked back, winning 90-71. The game featured Grant Gibbs’ first slam dunk as a Bluejay, and Doug McDermott’s 1000th point in just his 57th game at Creighton. Check out all the highlights below!
