Highlight Reel: Wisconsin and Arizona State
Friday night, Creighton took on perennial Big Ten power Wisconsin. Otter wrote afterward, “November? Hardly. Creighton’s hard fought win over the Wisconsin Badgers Friday night at the Las Vegas Invitational had all the trappings of an NCAA Tournament game. It took 18 lead changes and 10 ties, but the Jays found a way to pull away from Bucky and take advantage of the opportunity to post what will surely become a signature win come March.”
The Jays were the first Badger opponent in two years to score more than 80 points against them; you can see our exclusive photo gallery from WBR photographer Mike Spomer here, or check out all the highlights below!
The next night against Arizona State, “Greg McDermott’s Bluejays rose to the occasion, becoming the only team in the nation to begin the season with six consecutive wins with double-digit margins … To the casual observer, Creighton’s wins during the weekend were relatively easy. Any CU fans watching from the Orleans or on TV would beg to differ.”
Once again Mike Spomer was there shooting photos for WBR, and here’s our exclusive highlight package from the win.
