Dana Altman’s final Creighton squad was the school’s first ever to win consecutive postseason games, going 2-1 and reaching the semifinals of the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament. The Bluejays saw their streak of 11 straight 20-win seasons snapped, but did win at least 10 MVC games for the 14th straight year and reached the postseason for a 13th straight campaign.

Kenny Lawson Jr. led Creighton in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots, while Antoine Young led the team in assists. The team lost double-digit leads in road losses at No. 21 Dayton and No. 19 New Mexico; they were nearly unbeatable at home and barely won anywhere else, finishing 15-2 at home, 3-10 in true road games and 0-4 in neutral site contests.

Altman accepted the head coaching job at the University of Oregon on April 26, ending his 16-year career at Creighton with 327 wins and 13 postseason appearances.
